A Simple Dinner:
Cheese & Soup

The Cheeseboard:

Tomino da padella
– (cow, Robiola de Langhe) A small soft mild bloomy rind cheese with almost a slight sweetness. Very creamy.
Brunet
– (goat, Alta Langhe/Piedmonte Italy) A soft white bloomy rind cheese with mild salty flavor.
Les Levezou
(sheep - Basque Tomme) A pale gold hard rind cheese
Clisson from Jean D’alos
(goat, France) The cheeses are washed with sauternes during the aging process. The final semi-soft cheese has a orangeish rind and is cream colored with a delicate flavor. Very approachable and slightly salty.
Bleu de Causses from Herve Mons
(cow, France) – a mild blue cheese with a strong finish. The paste is creamy punctuated with blue pockets.
