Fromage of the Day, 06.21.10: Purple Haze. Zingey, creamy and direct, these discs of fresh goat cheese laced with lavender and fennel pollen are from California. It pairs well with drier white wines, west coast IPA’s and a good wheat beer. If it was an African band from the ’70s, it would be Munaye, easy to underrate but easily savored.
Next tasting: 06.22.10 Way out West at The Clerkenwell
