Cheese: Sweet Emotions (pasteurized goats’ milk and cows’ cream)
Farm: Lazy Lady Farm
Amount: 1/3 lb.
What Saxelby has to say: When Steven Tyler wrote the song, this cheese wasn’t yet a gleam in cheese maker Laini Fondiller’s eye. But if Tyler tasted it today, he might be willing to re-work some of the lyrics to be more cheesecentric. A small disc of absolutely sinful cheese, with an interior the texture of mousse-like buttery silk. Sweet Emotions is made from the milk of Laini’s goats, with the added shot (if we were talking espresso here, it’d be a big one!) of cream from Butterworks Farm, one of Vermont’s most lauded organic dairies.
