Fromage of the Day, 02.02.11:Lazy Lady Barack Obama. Dense, very herbal and aromatic, this cow’s milk cheese is made in Vermont (and got its name after the 2004 convention). It pairs well with unabashedly sweet wines, ciders or a Brooklyn Local Two. If it was a Stevie Wonder song….well, you know where we’re going with this one (though the link is to a rendition on the Dick Cavett show).
The Joy of Cheese monthlong celebration of hard cheeses continues February 8 at Clerkenwell with a tasting called Red Red Wine. Details are here.
