Carr Valley Cheese Company 6 lb. Billy Blue Goat Cheese Wheel
Offer your customers a true delicacy with this Carr Valley Cheese Company billy blue cheese! This blue cheese is made from the milk of goats who graze on lush Wisconsin pastures and is aged in a humid, temperature-controlled environment that encourages the growth of the Penicillium bacteria that gives blue cheeses their distinctive blue-green veining. The result is a tangy, distinctive blue cheese that's full of the robust flavor of goat's milk - as its name suggests! Its texture is smooth, incredibly creamy, and delightfully crumbly, making it perfect for slicing and serving as a table cheese or crumbling over salads. This prized cheese has won 1st place at the 2006 American Dairy Goat Association Awards, 1st place at the 2011 and 2012 World Cheese Awards, 1st place at the 2012 and 2014 American Cheese Society Competition, and Super Gold at the 2013 World Cheese Awards!
This blue cheese is perfect for featuring on your cheese plate or charcuterie board! Pair it with sweet fruits like figs, strawberries, dried apricots, pears, or peaches, savory walnuts, prosciutto, or golden honey for a truly delectable spread. When considering beverage pairings that complement this tangy cheese, opt for fruity reds that aren't too dry, such as Merlot or Pinot Noir, or whites that aren't too forward, like Sauvignon Blanc, dry Riesling, or Italian white wine. This blue cheese is also an excellent addition to your menu, especially as a substitution for recipes that call for stronger blue cheeses like Roquefort. This cheese is an easy way to add a little zing when sprinkled over a salad, and can even be used to put an exciting twist on handcrafted, gourmet blue cheese dressing! You can also use it to add tangy creaminess to roasted vegetables, pasta dishes, or sauces and dips. Add this goat blue cheese to a classic roasted beet and blue cheese salad, or use it to top off a juicy burger loaded with caramelized onions and leafy greens! This 6 lb. cheese wheel will keep you well stocked with what is sure to become a favorite on your menu.
