This week’s tasting was Miyoko’s Country Style Herbes de Provence, a departure from the double cream cheeses we are so addicted to from Miyoko’s.
This cheese is covered with herbs (on the website, lovely purple specks of lavender are visible, though not on the cheese we received). Still, it’s no less appetizing — and the lavender flavor came through in every bite.
This is a firmer cheese, very easily sliced — and if set out for a while, it’s highly spreadable. The bursts of flavors from the herbs (among them, lavender, rosemary, and thyme) blend well with the mellow, creamy texture and flavor of the cheese.
This is another amazing cheese from Miyoko’s — we have yet to try one that it’s very near perfection. Enjoy!
AND — as if you need a reason to order Miyoko’s online — the company is now donating 1 percent of all online sales to nonprofits — for the month of may, the nonprofit is Friends of Animals. Learn more here.
