A lightly cooked, pressed-curd cheese, aged for at least ninety days, Appalachian is a lush, vibrant cheese evocative of cream and butter with a mushroom earthiness that mimics the cellars its aged in. Lemon notes shade to toasted as the cheese ages. The texture is velvety, melting on the tongue.
Appalachian Tomme is made with raw cow’s milk and made by Meadow Creek Dairy in Virginia. It is excellent on a cheese plate and is well complimented by a crisp white wine such as a Sauvignon Blanc or Gruner Veltliner or even a smooth lager.
