June Bug Cake of Cheese
The June Bug Cake of Cheese features four artisan cheeses:
- Wabash Cannonball is a soft, goat milk cheese made by Capriole in Greenville, Indiana. Like its namesake, the train, this cheese travels to your cheese board rather quickly – ripening in only 10 days. It has won Best in Show at the American Cheese Society awards.
- Mount Tam is fresh, cow milk cheese made by Cowgirl Creamery in Petaluma, California. Mount Tam is a triple-cream, with flavor hints of mushroom, and has won the American Cheese Society awards more than once.
- Rosie’s Robiola is a soft mixed-milk cheese made by Boxcarr Handmade Cheese in Cedar Grove, North Carolina. In fact, this is a cheese with origins in Italy – a mixed milk Italian farm cheese that ages for less than a month – and puts a smooth, but zingy flavor on your palate.
- Timber Coulee is a sheep milk cheese made by Hidden Springs Creamery in Westby, Wisconsin. Also, it is made in the style of Basque cheese Ossau Iraty, this cheese is aged 6 months and is nutty with a buttery finish.
This cake is approximately 5 inches wide (at its base) and 10 inches tall. It contains approximately 52 1-ounce servings of cheese.
