Fall Harvest :: Beekman Blaak

To begin our fall harvest dinner, we served Beekman 1802 Farm’s Blaak cheese. This beautiful wheel is made from a mixture of goat and cow’s milk (Beekman’s own) and is aged for four months. While aging it is coated with ash at every turning. This oh so attractive ash coating calms the acidity of the cheese, is a catalyst for ripening, and forms it’s edible rind.
