Fromage of the Day, 07.29.12: Monjes. Peppery, earthy, and utterly palate numbing, this cheese is from Spain. It pairs nicely with your favorite Sauternes, a Gavroche Red, a Maker’s Mark, or an Eden Ice Cider. If it was a Lou Reed recording, it would be Metal Machine Music. Yes, I’m still thinking about a Joy of Cheese August Event.
