Murray’s Cavemaster Reserve Stockinghall Cheddar
THE FIRST MURRAY'S-MADE CHEESE IS HERE!
Cow's milk, cheese cloth, and lard - such a simple combination, but when you combine it with Murray's dedication and passion for cheese, it becomes truly magical.
Murray's Stockinghall Cheddar is New York's newest Clothbound Cheddar, and it's the result of a year of experimentation.
After wheels, fresh from Cornell University, arrive at our cheese cave at a week and a half old, they're wrapped in cheese cloth, rubbed in lard, and allowed to sit and age. The cheese that emerges is both crumbly and fudgy.
Murray's first cheese - from milk to make to our counters - embodies meaty bacon and sour cream flavors to create a robust cheddar with a lingering pineapple scent. Each crumble deserves the sweet murmur of Merlot, or a sip of stout - so pour a glass and toast to Murray's first cheese!
Just the Facts
The hands that wash the cheese may change, but the title remains the same - Cavemaster. Since the inception of the caves beneath Bleecker Street at Murray's, we've had an expert aboard whose sole purpose is to tend to the hundreds of cheeses lurking below the store. And every now and again, they'll create an entirely new cheese; either by washing, aging or coating, the result always impresses.
