2011 American Cheese Society Competition Winner!
Humboldt Fog, made by Mary Keens at Cypress Grove Chevre in McKinleyville, California, is a gorgeous, five-pound wheel of young goat's milk cheese sprinkled in vegetable ash and left to develop a pillowy white bloomy rind. Its defining characteristic is the thin line of black ash running through the bright white middle of each wheel. Humboldt Fog is moist with a tight texture and exhibits a wonderful clean, lemony taste characteristic of great goat's milk cheese. Pair this cheese with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, or Muscat.
