Whatever your Thanksgiving tradition is, let a Harvest Cheese Board To Go be a part of it! So unbutton your pants, turn on the parade, take pictures of your drunk uncle passed out on the couch, and let the curdy times roll. Dazzle your pod with a spread sure to please the (small) crowd, starting with a one year Manchego that will be gone as fast as Snoopy in the wind. It hails from the Southern Spanish plains of Castilla La Mancha, where it develops intense nuttiness and a long, fruity finish. Made using fresh, pasteurized sheep's milk, from a region so rocky and traverse that cow’s just can’t hang, this Manchego develops a rich and pleasant gaminess (think toasted almonds and broiled lamb chops) after over a year of aging. The patterned rind is a nod to the grass baskets previously used to form the cheese. We love to pair a harder cheese with a soft one; Enter Robiola Bosina from the Piedmont region of Italy. This luscious little slab of mild, creamy goodness is made from the pasteurized milk of Piedmont cows and sheep, for perfectly balanced mushroomy, salty, and sweet flavors. The silky interior has been known to run from the tender, edible rind ever so gently across the plate when warm, so be ready with slices of crusty bread in one hand and a flute of Prosecco in the other. If for some reason which we can’t comprehend there are leftovers, spread it on your bagel Friday Morning to up your ante from boring old cream cheese or butter. With Creminelli’s Wild Boar salami, made from feral swine, fig and sultana crackers, and a local pear sauce from Hudson Harvest (put a dab on the robiola or just spoon it in to your mouth with reckless abandon), your Thanksgiving appetizers have never looked so good. So kick, back, turn on the game, argue with Aunt Karen about politics, and let the tryptophan lure you away.
Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving from your whole Harvest Crew! We always have your back.
