October Cheese Club: Iowa

Cheese Clubtomme-saint-georges-cheeseTomme Saint Georges
Midi-Pyrenees, France

Named after the town where it is made, in the Midi-Pyrenees region of France, this washed rind, pasteurized, sheep’s milk cheese is a cross between a traditional tomme and a sheep’s milk alpine cheese. The paste is moist and creamy, and the flavor starts with notes of toasted bread and finishes richly with notes of sweet cream, chives and leeks. The flavors are complex and exciting. 

Pair with any of the wines from our October Wine Club Selections. For beer, look for a light or pale ale or lager.

Toledo, Spain

Made from raw sheep’s milk and aged for a minimum of 4 months, this cheese sets itself apart from other cheeses, as it has rosemary in the paste of the cheese (while most others only have the rosemary on the rind). The flavor is more subtle and less astringent, the rosemary perfumes the cheese beautifully. It is creamy in texture with a slight sweetness and a smooth lingering finish. Try some shaved on a ham sandwich, then warm in a sandwich press.

Pair with any of the wines from our October Wine Club Selections. For beer, pair with a dark ale or porter.

WINESTYLES: Silky or Bold
BEERSTYLES: Malty or Fuity & Spicy
