Fromage of the Day, 12.21.11: Cornish Yarg

Fromage of the Day, 12.21.11: Cornish Yarg.  Herbal, complex, and crumbly, this English cow’s milk cheese is made in Cornwall.  It’s a denser companion to the cheddar like cheeses also made in the U.K.  It pairs well with your favorite Bourgogne, a Hoften Dormaal Blonde, or almost any cider.  If it was a vocalist, it would be Patricia Barber, it draws you in.  The Joy of Cheese January Events will be announced on Friday.


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.

    Wonderful! I look forward to trying this new item. I fell in love with Black Diamond 5 year aged white cheddar this year. Anything similar is welcome.

    Thanks Willow,
    I’ve been at this for two years with a pause here and there when life got too busy. I work in the cheese biz, so no, I haven’t gotten tired of this yet.

    What’s your blog called?
