Fromage of the Day, 07.27.12: Gubbeen

Fromage of the Day, 07.27.12: Gubbeen.  Grassy, tangy and slightly aromatic, this washed rind cow’s milk cheese is from Cork, Ireland.  It pairs well with your favorite Muller Thurgau, a Ommegang Art of Darkness, A Foggy Ridge Cider or what the hey, a Red Breast.  If it was a Marvin Gaye recording, it would be “I Want You,” simmering and complex.  I would say something about the Joy of Cheese August event, but you’ve heard it all before.

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
