An American farmhouse interpretation of the classic Alpine Raclette, Spring Brook Farm Reading is funky and savory with a nutty finish. It’s made from raw Jersey cow’s milk, and undergoes at least 3 months of washing. The result is a perfectly meltable cheese with layers of satisfying umami flavor. Pair it with a glass of white wine and sample it alongside some Trois Petits Cornichons or melt it with a Barbeclette and serve it atop fresh grilled peaches.
