Happy 4th From Bloomy.
The official start of the summer for me has always been the 4th of July. Celebrate the 4th in style with this new into the store fantastic Barbaclettes, from Boska. Perfect for placing on the grill and having a summer raclette party or to melt cheese for a great steak or burger. Bloomy Rind will also be offering many summer sides to pick up and save time during this busy weekend, pea guacamole, romesco, carrot hummus, salsas, fresh summer sausages and more.
As this summer season gets under way more artisinal cheeses are coming available including,
Bloomsday from Cato Corner,CONN, A hugely successful mistake! says's the owner.." created this recipe out of necessity when a different batch did not go as planned, and we love the result". Named for Joyce's Ulysses, the Bloomsday is drier textured than many of our cheeses with a fabulous nutty flavor and addictive lingering aftertaste. Bloomsday is a perfect addition to any cheese plate and it makes a delicious sandwich or grilled cheese. Currently we are selling these at 6 months old, when the bite is medium sharp.
From Haystack farm Queso de Mano, CO, their first raw goat milk cheese, has a robust, nutty flavor with herbal hints. It is aged for a minimum of four months.
Inspiration from Mt Mansfield VT., washed rind cheese, raw milk, recipe from the Island of Corsica. The molds on the rind are typical of this French recipe. Smooth and semi-soft texture with a nutty flavor. Many times washed with Rock Art Beer. A favorite cheese amongst beer lovers.
As always we have the perfect accouterments and sandwiches to place in your 4th of July picnic basket or to take out on your boat.
We do ask that you pre-order the petit sandwiches 48 hours in advance as the bread is baked fresh in the morning.
