Sometimes I freaking hate “technology.” Sometimes, like especially when I have JUST WRITTEN an entire blog post and then it gets eaten by the computer, I just feel like throwing in the towel. Really, that’s how I feel sometimes.
Other things that sometimes make me angry include ignorance-specifically cheese ignorance. I was at a mall kiosk the other day (yes, feel pity, I was that desperate for food) when a woman approached a Greek “food” place and asked them if they used “goat’s cheese or milk cheese?” I almost went crazy on her. Really. Milk cheese? What the hell do you think goat’s cheese is made of? Modified goat sweat? Umm. Anyway, I digress, the thing is, there’s just so much prejudice against goat’s cheese out there, it’s really a shame when it’s basically the best thing ever.
Speaking of the best thing ever, I think it’s generally agreed upon by all people over the age of 10 that truffles are also the best thing ever. They just are, do not try to argue this point with me, especially this morning whilst I am so cross at both technology and cheese ignorance. I don’t know what the hell goes into the creation of these magical mushrooms (not those kind of magical mushrooms, silly) but they just make anything that touches them about 50% better. So to mix goat’s milk cheese and truffles is kind of unfair, right? The best cheese and the best taste together, it’s kind of like caramel and salt-hard to go wrong with an alliance like that. However, just because something is patently going to be great doesn’t mean I need to ignore it out of principal, right? It’s my blog, and I can eat whatever cheese I want to. So it is unfair, I’m just going to put that out there now. Pairing truffles with anything is unfair, truffle cheese in a can would probably be divine, but pairing it with a bloomy-rind surface-ripened goat’s-milk cheese, isn’t that just kind of so fabulous it should almost be illegal? Do all other cheeses just tremor at the sight of it?
I have previously reviewed one other truffle cheese-Boschetto al Tartufo on day 59 https://myblogofcheese.wordpress.com/2011/12/29/day-59-boschetto-al-tartufo/ .This was a hard sheep’s milk cheese with slivers of white truffle that put me over the moon with joy! I have also previously reviewed another cheese by today’s maker Cypress Grove Chevre Creamery, https://myblogofcheese.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/day-90-lamb-chopper/ a fantastic sheep’s milk gouda, so of course, I was fascinated to learn that the Cypress Grove also made a Goat’s milk truffle cheese. Clearly, this cheese and I had to make each other’s acquiaintance.
