White Lake Cheeses Rachel

$35.00/Lb


Smooth, sweet, and a little nutty, with the classic tang of goat’s milk and the slight funk of a washed rind, Rachel is a cheese that has it all. Which is perhaps why it continues to win ribbon after ribbon, from the British Cheese Awards to the World Cheese Awards. These wheels are fashioned on a farm in Somerset, England, where they are scrubbed with a brine solution and aged for several months, developing a rind of faded orange and an ivory paste full of eyes.

  • Farmhouse Ales & Sours

    Farmhouse, Saison, Bière de Garde, Lambic, Sour Beer

    Farmhouse ales, instead of being driven by malt or hops, depend on the yeast for their distinctive spicy, floral, and tart flavors. Commonly made by brewers in France and Belgium, farmhouse ales are usually light in color and body and quite effervescent. From time to time, brewers allow wild yeasts to ferment the beer, resulting in a brew that falls somewhere in between pleasantly bright to bracingly sour.

    Pair with: Mushroomy Brie Fermier or funky, bacony Epoisses are matches made in heaven.



  • Pinot Grigio

    A lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.

    Pair with: Creamy goat or mixed milk cheese with a crisp acidic element. La Tur or Brunet are great alongside the fruit-tart flavors of the wine.



  • Rye Whiskey

    Spicy with full-bodied flavor and a little earthiness, Rye Whiskeys pair well with harder cheese, like Guryere, Gouda, or Paramigiano-Reggiano. It’s spice and robust flavor will also cut through rich cheese, like Camembert.
