Fromage of the Day, 12.27.12: Tome D’Aquitaine

Fromage of the Day, 12.27.12: Tome D’Aquitaine.  Smooth, sweet and herbal, this firm goat’s milk cheese is washed in Sauternes in Graves, and it is aged by Jean D’Alos.  It is to Drunken Goat what a Macon Villages is to a Yellow Tail Chardonnay.  It pairs well with your favorite Sancerre, an Ommegang Rare Vos, a Hibiki Whisky, or a very dry cider.  If it was a Nina Simone cover, it would be her searing take on “Just Like Tom Thumb Blues.” Details on The Joy of Cheese January will be announced in a day or two.TomedeAcquitaine


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.
