Murray’s Cavemaster Labs Smoked Stephen
This item is no longer available.
Love the classically creamy St. Stephen from Hudson Valley’s Four Fat Fowl? Meet its smoky sibling, an original creation straight from the Murray’s Caves. Using a cold smoking gun, our Cavemasters smoke a green or unaged round of St. Stephen inside a chamber until it’s infused with a rich, woodsy essence. After being treated in our Caves, this new cheese emerges with a white, downy rind speckled with blue-green blooms, and a dense, velvety paste that’s packed with notes of barbecue smoke and bacon, a hint of roasted hazelnuts, and just a touch of sweet buttermilk. To bring out its earthy savor, this smoked saint is best with a craft cider or sour ale, and a dollop of spiced chutney or jam.
*Each wheel of Smoked Stephen is approximately 8 ounces.
