This cheese is in rare Fourme. Made from pasteurized cow's milk in Auvergne, each wheel of this little Frenchie is formed from unpressed curds inoculated with a less spicy blue mold than that of its cousin, Roquefort. From our selected cheesemaker, we import the wheels young, still a bit cumbly and tart, and settle them in for 4 weeks in our NYC caves. The result is a magical transformation: velvety mouthfeel full of sweet cream and an earthy, mushroomy roundness that will convert even the staunchest blue cheese hater. Add Tawny port and fresh pears, and you've got dessert. As seen in the New York Times.
