Fromage of the Day, 08.20.11: Manchester

Fromage of the Day, 08.20.11: Manchester.  Dense, herbal and grassy, this washed rind goat’s milk cheese is made in Vermont.  It pairs well with your favorite California Chardonnay (presuming you have one), a Brooklyn Brewery Monster, or a Scrumpy Cider.  If it was a tune from the new Giacomo Gates disc, it would be “Lady Day and John Coltrane,” complex and elegant.  The Joy of Cheese September Events begin September 21 at Premier Cru.  More details soon.

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.

    I’m still learning about chees and what type of wine, or fruit, beer, etc., that goes well with the different varieties of cheese, – HOWEVER, I DO LOVE JAZZ AS MUCH AS YOU LOVE BASKETBAL, AND I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT “GIACOMO GATES”,
    I SAW HIM LIVE UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL LAST WEEKEND AT THE SAN JOSE, CA JAZZ FESTIVAL, THE HOUSE WAS PACKED (LITERALLY) STANDING ROOM ONLY AND EVERYONE STAYED FOR THE FULL 90 MINUTE SET – AND HE SOLD OUT OF HIS CD’s BETTER GET HIM WHILE HE’s HOT, OH YES ALONG WITH SOME WINE AND CHEESE, YOU CAN’T GO WRONG.
