JOE'S CHEESE CORNER


 

JASPER HILL HARBISON This wonderful Vermont cheese was recently voted the “Best Cheese in America” and it is easy to see why. Harbison is a soft-ripened cheese with a rustic, bloomy rind. Wrapped in strips of a spruce tree inner bark layer, it’s creamy texture develops in their vaults and continues to soften on the way to market. Woodsy and sweet but balanced with lemony mustard like flavors, it can be scooped as a decadent treat when a bit younger, the bark can be peeled away for sliced portioning. Spread on crusty artisan bread and pair with an oaked Chardonnay or a hoppy IPA.

 
       
  TIPS FROM TOM
            "The Wine Guy"

 A PORT IN EVERY STORM With winter recently coming on strong, it is the perfect time to open a decadent sweet bottle of port. Settle in front of a warm fire, find an old movie, and enjoy a glass along with some roasted walnuts, a creamy blue cheese, or your favorite dark chocolate. Look for one labeled “Late Bottled Vintage” if you like rich dark berry style or the ruby colored nutty and caramelized characteristics of a aged “Tawny” port. In either case ports will last several weeks or longer once they are opened, assuring you plenty of stormy night sipping!
