Bonnieview Farm's Ben Nevis
While Vermont is revered for its many artisan cheesemakers, few of the cheeses that come out of the state feature sheep's milk. Ben Nevis is one notable exception, and this week, Cheese and Champagne features a glowing review.
Square-shaped and rocky-rinded, Ben Nevis evokes taste memories of a young Italian or Spanish sheep’s-milk cheese with its grassy notes and salty bite. You can find the cheese aged anywhere from 3 to 6 months – my wedge tasted as if it were on the younger side, with its creamy paste and and bright flavor.
