MouCo Cheese Company's Ashley
It looks like MouCo Cheese Company's latest creation, Ashley, is soft, creamy, and sweet.
MouCo Cheese Company’s fourth variety of soft cheese, dubbed Ashley, is revealed. As the moniker subtly suggests, Ashley is a variety of the popular trend of vegetable ash cheeses. The pairing of the tangy soft ripened center with Ashley’s smoky edible rind made of vegetables reduced to ash proves that opposites do certainly attract to create an unexpected sweetness to the palate. The result is a complex and creamy mildly sweet cheese.
The coordination of the juxtaposed tangy and earthy flavors in harmony is a prevailing style in Europe; this tradition has been longstanding in cheese making. MouCo’s Ashley is distinguished among this tradition for its use of pasteurized local Colorado cow’s milk and its increasing complexity throughout the aging process. Ashley mingles the European heritage with a modern United States charm. MouCo describes the cheese as tart, silky, and smooth with a balanced sweet finish.
