Cheese: Riley’s Coat (raw goat’s milk)
Farm: Blue Ledge Farm; Salisbury, Vermont
Amount: 1/3 lb.
What Saxelby has to say: A semi-firm, sweet and musty goats’ milk cheese from Vermont’s Champlain Valley. Named for the cheesemakers’ beloved hound, Riley, this cheese is anything but dogged. The flavor is milky and mellow, with a grassy, honeyed and floral flavor. Aged between 4 to 5 months, during which time the cheese develops a beautifully rustic natural rind.
