Dear Von Trapp Farmstead Mad River Blue Cheese,
Trying to write a love letter to cheese makes me feel a little bit like Forrest Gump. I may not be an educated smarty pants who knows how to adequately describe how cheese tastes, but I know what love is.
I know I like blue cheese in general. I get the store brand crumbles and throw it on my salads and into my buffalo chicken dip. I thoroughly enjoy pizzas with blue cheese on them – the more gorgonzola, the better! But the whole point of this blog post is you, Mad River Blue. The best blue cheese I’ve ever had.
I was browsing the cheese section of Roche Brothers, as always, and picked you up with a few other cheeses to try. I was drawn to you because I was craving blue cheese, and I’m a sucker for cheese from Vermont. Thank god I did because to me, you are perfect. Mad River Blue, you’ve got the perfect amount of salty blue cheese bite with a smooth texture that almost melts in my mouth. You’re not too intense but not boring either. It’s going to be a while before I get sick of you.
Please go on sale sometime so that I can stock up.
