Consider Bardwell Farm Dorset
On its web site, Consider Bardwell Farm of West Pawlet, VT describes their raw cow's milk cheese Dorset as being made in the style of Taleggio. It is much better than that, considerably earthier and more complex, albeit firmer, thanks to three months' aging. Dorset has an orange basket-weave rind, smooth and tight, with bright yellow grass-fed Jersey cow interior. Expect a taste somewhere between Pont l'Eveque and ribbons of fat-framed, acorn-fed, Spanish jamon. Toothsome, hearty and perfect with porter.
