This month we have selected Carrigaline Beech Smoked, made in beautiful East Cork by Anne & Pat O’Farrell. Carrigaline is a mild to medium strength havarti-style cheese made using pasteurized cow’s milk and vegetarian rennet. The flavor is buttery, creamy and offers a distinctive and smooth taste. This perfect melting cheese is most certainly worthy of this title. This cheese is available from Dean & Deluca or European Imports. Learn more about the people behind the cheese by clicking here. You can also be inspired by some recipes from the farmers themselves by clicking here.
