Hello, Wisconsin! (Cave-aged Marisa)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Cave-Aged Marisa
Region: Midwest, USA
Milk: Sheep

This came highly recommended by the Cowgirl Creamery shop in San Francisco, and I must say that it is truly one of the most phenomenal cheeses I have ever tasted. Cave-aged Marisa is smooth and firm in texture. It's flavor is tangy and flowery, and somewhat reminiscent of lavender. The cheese is named after the cheesemaker, Sid Carr's fourteen-year old daughter, Marisa. It hails from La Valle, Wisconsin and yes!... it is actually aged in open-air caves. In 2005, it was awarded 1st place in its class at the American Cheese Society competition. It can be a bit tricky to find, though did come to learn tha
t it can be ordered online through the cheesemaker's website, ( suppose it ain't called "America's Dairyland" for nothin'.

I have been able to find this cheese at my local shop, Silverlake Cheese. So, if you, too are in Los Angeles....
