Briar Rose Cheese Sampler
Briar Rose Creamery is a small team of cheesemakers, crafting award-winning cheeses in Dundee, Oregon. Everything is made by hand, from start to finish. Briar Rose's Cheesemaker, Sarah, is a dear friend of OP and her cheeses are a match made in heaven with our salami. This set includes the following, each cheese is 3-4 ounces.
Callisto: Semi-firm, washed rind COW’S milk cheese. Alpine-style, (think Gruyere, Fontina) dense & chewy paste with a few eyes. Hints of sour cream, preserved lemons, brown mustard, roasted sunflower seeds, peanut skin, shiitake mushrooms, brown buttered popcorn notes.
Fata Morgana: Basket-shaped, rindless feta-style cheese. It is creamy yet crumbly. The flavors reveal hints of orange blossoms, vanilla, buttered popcorn, and tangerines.
Damona: Semi-soft, cow’s milk cheese with a supple paste and a few eyes. Flavor is approachable, with hints of buttered toast, warm popcorn, savory fudge/tootsie roll, green olives, and panna cotta.
