Cheese With a Brooklyn Point of View
Whole Foods Stores in New York City have begun selling their original "Point of Origin," a washed-rind, raw cow's milk cheese. The stinky cheese is washed in local Sixpoint Brownstone Brown Ale, and will be available in Whole Foods across the Northeast shortly.
Its grassy aroma, with a whiff of malt, does not announce its presence boldly. The sticky rind is beige and deepens in color as it ages; the satiny ivory cheese within is mellow, with a sweetly tangy bite. Not ready for Époisses? This is the cheese for you.
