Adrian’s cheese recommendations:
Cave Aged Gruyere — around $11/lb
Adrian says: “The quintessential mountain cheese. Ranks consistently well against other alpine cheeses twice the price. A lovely expression of high-elevation pasturage: herbaceous, caramelly, with hints of toasted hazelnuts.”
Cobb Hill Ascutney Mountain Cheese — around $16/lb
Adrian says: “A gruyere-style cheese made at a cooperative in Central Vermont.
It’s every bit as elegant and buttery as a Beaufort, but with an almost candied, American exuberance. The quality of this cheese has grown by leaps and bounds over the past five years.”
Abbaye de Citeaux — around $24/lb
Adrian says: “The mildest of the so-called Holy Trinity of Burgundian washed-rind, raw cow’s milk cheeses (The other two are Epoisses and L’Ami de
Chambertin). Made at the monastery where the Cistercian order was founded. It’s buttery and vegetal and compulsively edible.”
