A little golden cheese, "Goldette Tommette" is a 1.5 lb semi-firm wheel with a lightly washed rind. Made from rich raw jersey cow milk, at 2 to 3 months of age the cheese has a firm but creamy mouth feel, pleasing aroma & a nice buttery tang. As it ages longer, the flavor instensifies. We think of her as the slim blonde cousin of our "Fat Bottom Girl" sheep cheese. The name is inspired by the paste's golden hue - thanks to the jersey cow milk - and suggests a touch of sass, which is present from the subtly funky microbes that grow on the rind. Goldette is very versatile in beverage pairings, super friendly to many types of beers, and she is a gorgeous melting cheese - try Goldette instead of Raclette for melting and we promise you will be pleased! To really get your cheese party started, try using it with a girolle, aka "cheese curler" made by Boska.
