Camellia & Cameo
Camembert-Style Goat Milk Cheese
Named after one of our favorite does, Camellia is a luscious, Camembert-style goat milk cheese. It has a mild, buttery flavor and firm texture when young, becoming softer and more complex with age. The white, edible penicillum candidum rind ripens the cheese from the outside inwards, becoming fully ripe when the center is soft to the touch (like a ripe peach). This usually takes 5-6 weeks, though the cheese is delicious at any age.
Cameo is an 8 oz. semi-soft Camembert inspired bloomy rind cheese delicately covered with a variety of fresh herbs, was awarded "Best in Show" at the 2011 California State Fair Cheese Competition! Like Camellia, Cameo's mild buttery flavor ages beautifully with a complex herbal infused flavor and a Camembert's classic ultra creamy interior.
Storage & Serving Suggestions
Wrap cut pieces in cheese paper or parchment paper. Storing in plastic wrap is not advised as it does not allow the cheese to breathe. Enjoy these multiple award winners at room temperature, paired with fresh apple or pear and your favorite wine.
