Fromage of the Day, 07.26.11: Juniper Grove Buche

Fromage of the Day, 07.26.11: Juniper Grove Buche.  Soft, tangy and herbal, this goat’s milk cheese from Oregon has a stick of hay through its middle.  It pairs nicely with your favorite Torrontes,a  Mikkeller Calvados Barrel Aged Barley Wine Ale, or a wide variety of more conventional, easier to find alcoholic beverages.  If it was a Monk cover group, it would the Steve Lacy-Roswell Rudd quartet of School Days era, engaging and innovative.   The Joy of Cheese Summer Events resume August 2nd at d.b.a. Brooklyn.  Details are here.


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 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 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.

  1. Aiiii, this sound incredible. I’ve read about this cheese but never seen it around. Your write-ups are enticing — how about photos?

    Thank you! Considering the source, this is high praise. Sometimes I pirate a photo and post it and I often provide a link to some of the music. Then I hit about a month and half where it all became too much work on a daily basis. Thus I do photos and links when I have the time and opportunity. Some of the cheeses like Tomme Brebis Chevre and Ziegenbergkase are too new to have much photo evidence lying around the web, though.
    I work on Saturdays at Bedford Cheese Shop, but I don’t think they’d appreciate me taking pictures of the merchandise to further my own endeavors. were you at CMI?
