Melville is a brand new cheese, from a brand new cheesemaking operation in Mystic, Connecticut, and we’re excited about it. Here’s why you should be, too: a white whale, it’s the rare American super-fresh Stracchino cheese, inspired by the Northern Italian style, which is all about smoothness, pliability and awesome meltability. Melville’s namesake is Herman Melville—homage to the texture of the soft, luxuriously buttery square of cow’s milk cheese. It’s a supple, silky “singularly fatty globule of pure deliciousness,” and a mere few weeks old.

Hudson Valley creamery, Four Fat Fowl, took its name from a colonial rental fee charged by the last landlord of Rensselaerswyck (what’s now Rensselaer county”), which amounted to a day’s labor, including ten to twenty bushels of wheat.

Serve with local, NY honey, fresh berries and something bubbly to drink. Read More
