This weekend is the Nantucket Wine Festival and we have been invited to teach a seminar on cheese and wine. After multiple brainstorming sessions on the subject / angle / title of the seminar we came up with the idea to talk about Terroir and look at Europe's "old world cheese" and US's "new world cheese"
The cheese list and selection is impressive:
Parmigiano Reggiano from Italy,
Clothbound Cheddar from England, and
Camembert as the French ambassador!
For the US team, we picked our tasty little aged goat cheese "Bonne Bouche", the washed-rind "Valfino" cheese from our friends at Roth Kase in Wisconsin and of course the sublime "Oregon Blue" from Rogue Creamery in Central Point, OR.
All wines are from California - See you on the Island!
