I love cheese. And I eat a lot of it. Apparently so do a lot of other people. I’ve read that Americans eat an average of a half pound of cheese a week. I'm guessing I eat more than that, but I really don't want to know.
At the Sunset Celebration event last weekend, there were a variety of artisan cheese makers. I had the opportunity to nibble on some old favorites and sample some new favorites as well. We’re already familiar with several of the Cypress Grove Chevre cheeses due to their popularity at wine and cheese pairings we’ve attended. Humboldt Fog and Midnight Moon, both aged goat cheeses, often show up on the menu at our favorite place for wine tasting, GC’s Tasting Café. A young Humboldt Fog pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc and we’ve enjoyed Midnight Moon paired with both chardonnay and with Cabernet Sauvignon.
