Fromage of the Day, 07.17.12: Tomme De La Chataigneraie

Fromage of the Day, 07.17.12:  Tomme De La Chataigneraie.  Smooth, nutty, and herbal, this semi-firm goat’s milk cheese is made in Auvergne.  It pairs well with your favorite Mersault, a Mikkeller Dream Pils, a Foggy Ridge First Fruit Cider, or your favorite Van Winkle.  If it was a Big John Patton tune, it would be “Spiffy Diffy,” smooth and sunny.  The Joy of Cheese August events will be announced 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 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.

    where are you finding it now – since Murray’s doesn’t deal with Herve Mons? If Epicerie Boulud doesn’t happen to have it at the time, since they rotate quarterly.

    I approached Mons about selling to my shop and they said their deal with Whole Foods prevented them from doing business with me. Too bad. I haven’t seen or tasted any Chataigneraie in nearly a year now. I last saw it at Bedford in my final weeks there.
