Seal Cove Farm's Olga
A raw milk cheese named Olga, made from a mix of goat's and cow's milk, profiled by Cheese and Champagne.
Like Pearl, Olga is made from the farm’s own goats milk and organic cows milk from a nearby farm. That’s where the similarities end, however, as Olga is made from raw milk (aged 60+ days), and is a dense, larger, washed-rind wheel fashioned after traditional French tommes. Its creation was actually a collaboration between cheesemaker Barbara Brooks and a Ukrainian intern, Olga.
Olga is a bright, buttery cheese with a light golden rind. The paste is flecked with tiny holes, and it bears a slight caramel sweetness with just a hint of musty goat flavor. It is a mellow washed rind that won’t overwhelm other cheeses on your cheese board. Try it with a hoppy beer or Riesling.
