La Tur

June 18, 2011

Recently, when asked what her favorite cheese is, The Lady replied, “Usually the last one I tasted.”  And this is the last one I tasted and it’s now a new favorite around the manse.

La Tur is a small, dense, creamy wheel of bloomy rind heaven made from a combination of cow, sheep and goat milks. The snowy rind resembles a brain… not to be confused with The Brain… and just inside is a cream line of gooey, decadent tang surrounding an earthy, lactic paste. The lingering after-taste is satisfying and remains long after the entire wheel has been devoured.

It’s small enough to be consumed my two humankinds and one feline foodie in one sitting… even though one of them is a bit on the selfish side and once more tried to get more than his fair share…

I give La Tur 4 Paws out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got). 

Serving Suggestions: All you need is a paw or if you’re of the humankind persuasion, a nice slice of warm baguette will do nicely. Nothing fancy, just some luscious cheese and a vessel to transport it to your mouth.

Wine Suggestion: Champagne or a Sparkling Wine

Beer Suggestion: Maybe a Dortmunder Export
