Meet Lillé, a Bloomy-Rind Cheese From Vermont
Cheese and Champagne writes this lovely blog post about a Vermont-born, bloomy-rind cheese named Lillé.
As our regular readers can attest, we eat, and therefore write about, a lot of bloomy-rind cheeses here at C+C. We can’t help it – Colleen and I gravitate toward these plush white pillows like a kid toward dirt. And in the course of consuming all these bloomies, I’ve developed my own classification system. Some cheeses, like Chaource or Kunik, give your tastebuds a bath of rich, warm, gooey goodness – like eating a stick of softened butter. Others, such as Moses Sleeper, offer the opposite sensation, cooling the palate like a glass of chilled milk. Lillé, a recent discovery from Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company, falls into the latter category.
