Durrus Farmhouse Cheese
This washed-rind, milky sweet bauble is from Ireland and created by cheesemaker-extraordinaire, Jeffa Gill of County Cork. Gill's dairy is one of the last Irish farms using raw cow's milk, supplied by neighboring farms throughout the year. Each wheel is lovingly created - Jeffa handcrafts each herself, hand-molding the curds and washing them in a salt brine. Durrus is allowed to ripen for 4-8 weeks before the cheese is shipped over the Atlantic to us. It is worth the trip, as the gentle fruity flavor and creamy, semi-soft texture of Durrus help it to take its place on any cheese devotee's board. Brighten its gentle fruit flavors with a glass of bubbly champagne.
