Boxcarr Handmade Rocket's Robiola Cheese
An attractive bloomy grey square of cheese that is made from pasteurized cow's milk and animal rennet and carries the name Rocket's Robiola. The small cheese receives a dusting of vegetable ash before developing a doughy, wrinkled rind.
The flavor of the cheese is tangy, bright and chalky, almost like yogurt, when it is young, but continuous to break down from week to week into a slow, oozing paste with notes of butter-roasted mushroom and toasted almond.
This gourmet cheese is made in Cedar Grove, North Carolina, by the Genke family, a first-generation farming family who started Boxcarr Handmade Cheese in 2015.
You can imagine how beautiful this cheese will look on a cheeseboard and it may trigger a good conversation about cheese. Rocket's Robiola is also great on pasta and divine on a slice of crusty bread.
