Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread and Wine

Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread and Wine will be featuring its “Great Ladies of Cheese” medley box for Mother’s Day. Inspired by the illustrious forerunners of America’s artisan cheese movement, many of which were women, each cheese featured in this collection highlights a contemporary female cheese maker.

Soyoung Scanlon’s story weaves together a former career in biochemistry, a cheese making venture, and a love of classical music; all of her cheeses, as well as her Andante Dairy, are musical in name. Marieke Penterman studied making Boerenkaas (farmstead Gouda) on a traditional Dutch farmstead dairy and brought cultures and tools from her native Holland to her own farmstead operation in the Midwest. Pat Morford collected bits of cheese making equipment here and there for years on her dairy before actualizing her dream and starting Rivers Edge Chevre. Additionally, a spread from another American artisan cheese-lover, Nancy Wekselbaum, will be featured among the collection of artisan cheese selections.

The talent, dedication, and skill of these women bring you these tasty offerings: Picolo from Andante Dairy, Petaluma, CA; Cow’s Milk 4 oz. Marieke Gouda from Holland’s Family Cheese, Thorp, WI; Raw Cow’s Milk 6 oz. Up in Smoke from Rivers Edge Chevre, Logsden, OR; Goat’s Milk 4 oz. Gracious Gourmet Spread from The Gracious Gourmet, Bridgewater, CT.
