THE BIG CHEESE
OUR CHEESE SPECIAL OF THE WEEK!
Green Mountain Blue Cheese Boucher Blue
Owned by Dawn & Daniel Boucher, Green Mountain Blue Cheese is a small family-owned business located near Highgate Center in Vermont. The Boucher family has been associated with agriculture firstly in Quebec and then Vermont for nearly 400 years, and the current farm continues this tradition. The Boucher's farm is home to a mixed herd of French Normandy, Jersey and Holstein cows that provide milk for cheese production.
Based on a Fourme d'Ambert recipe, Boucher Blue is a firm, blue-veined cheese with a natural rind. The interior paste is ivory-white in color, close and dense with fairly sparse but distinct blue veins. The paste becomes darker and more caramel-colored towards the rind. Flavors are sweet, milky, earthy and woodsy with lingering notes of chestnuts, hay, and mushrooms.
