Truffle Tremor’s Taste
A new American classic from Cypress Grove but this time, with truffles! Truffle Tremor boasts an alabaster-colored rind (much like Humboldt Fog), is a richly fresh and dense goat cheese, delicately flavored by black truffles. Buried within this dense, cheesecake-like interior are flecks of Italian black summer truffles. Under the rind is a gooey layer of matured goat cream. The flavor is sweet, tart, earthy, and incredibly mushroomy. It’s a Stinky favorite and a great starter for a cheese course. Unlike so many truffles enhanced foods, Truffle Tremor is not doused in truffle oil; instead it is liberally flecked with Italian black truffles, giving it a distinct, but not gratuitous earthy truffle character.
Serving Truffle Tremor
The cheese itself is buttery, tangy as well as unexpectedly fluffy, with distinct gradations in flavor and consistency as you make your way from outer rind to center. Ideally, experience this Truffle Tremor in simply and relatively unadorned. Spread on crostini with a drop of raw honey, this cheese is perfection. Always begin with room temperature cheese, sliced thinly over fresh bread with maybe a few slices of seasonal fruit like pears to play up the natural texture. It’s also amazingly delicious over fresh pasta, mixed into polenta, and melted into a Panini sandwich along with roasted peppers and tomatoes.
How Truffle Tremor is Made
Aged three weeks and using a vegetarian rennet, this cheese is a testament to old world married with new.
