Sweet Rowen Farmstead Red Sky Soft Ripened Cheese
With its striking red and white mottled rind, this lactic beauty conjures a scene of a Vermont summer sunset or snowy mountain sunrise. Red Sky is dusted with a light coating of smoked paprika after unmolding giving it a light smoky, spicy and earthy flavor.
Sweet Rowen's “bloomies” are inspired by the small, crottin style cheeses of old Europe. These tall, drum shaped, lactic-set cheeses are carefully ladled by hand and aged for several weeks to ensure a good “bloomy” rind. The inner paste goes from dense to gooey as it ages and can be eaten at any stage according to your personal preferences. These cheeses deserve to be served at room temp, as you would a brie or camembert, to allow for full sensory appreciation.
