Made by Deb & Doug Erb of Landaff Creamery. Kinsman Ridge is inspired by funky French tommes like St. Nectaire, a style that's enviably more common in Europe than on this side of the pond.
Kinsman Ridge is a semi-soft, tomme-style cheese with aromas of fresh butter, forest and cured meat. Young wheels are washed with brine before a mottled natural rind is cultivated. As it matures, Kinsman's interior transitions from smooth and firm to a giving and creamy consistency. Flavors are rich, savory, and softly floral, with hints of roasted artichoke and asparagus.
