Fromage of the Day, 02.29.12: Twig Farm Tomme

Fromage of the Day, 02.29.12:  Twig Farm Tomme.  Earthy, buttery and herbal, this goat’s milk cheese is made in Vermont.  It’s a step up in sophistication from the easy, sweet firm goat’s milk cheeses like Midnight Moon and Pantaleo.  It pairs nicely with your favorite unoaked Chardonnay, an Evil Twin Williamsburg Hipster Ale, an Elmer T. Lee on the rocks, or Doc’s Pear Cider.  If it was a track by the Robert Glasper Experiment, it would be their cover of “Stakes is High” (featuring Mos Def), cool and distinctive.  The next Joy of Cheese/12% Beer Pairing is at the 92nd St. Y on April 19th, you can purchase tickets via this link, http://bit.ly/xayekE.

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.
