Episode 23: Winter Cheeses with Freakin’ Formmagios!

Hey Folks!

So, through a strange confluence of several events, I’m starting a new series on the Cheesefreak about seasonal cheeses.  I met Robert Aguilera, the former manager of Formaggio, the world famous cheese shop in Massachusetts after seeing an article he wrote on cheese in a local rag called Edible Boston.  Robert is beyond nice and INCREDIBLY knowledgeable about cheeses.  He recommended that since cheeses change with the season, I should do seasonal shows.  Just in time for the end of winter, I bring you four seasonal cheeses, and a ton of other stuff as Robert has a lot to tell us!  So much it took three videos!

Here’s the four cheeses we tried (I’m going to keep this brief as Robert explains everything!:

1. Senne Flada – a cows milk cheese from Switzerland.

2. Twig Farm Goat Tomme from West Cornwall , VT.

3. CorsuVecchiu – a sheep cheese from Corsica France (tasted like chocolate to me and like arse to Bob)

4. Bayrisher Blauschimmelkase – a cow blue from Algua Germany (OK this has to have the best cheese name ever!)

I think ya’ll will really enjoy these videos because Robert is totally amazing!

    That ginger kitty was REALLY paying attention at first. I think she would have listened longer if goat cheese wasn’t on the menu. Who knew?!
