Spread the Love!

In 2012 we introduced Layla, our bloomy rind Neufchâtel style cheese.  Like true love, Neufchâtel is enjoyable at many stages of
maturation; its flavor evolves from delicate and fruity to strong and salty. That said, we can’t think of a better cheese to showcase for Valentine’s Day! Allow us to introduce Coeur de Fromage (the heart of cheese), our lovely Layla in heart-shaped form created tenderly by hand in small 12-gallon batches.

The heart is actually a traditional shape of Neufchâtel style cheese. During the 6th century, the young women of Neufchâtel-en-Bray offered this cheese to their gallant knights during the Hundred Years War as a token of their affection.

 

We encourage you to keep the tradition alive by offering Coeur de Fromage to your sweetheart!


This beautiful cheese will be available the first week in February. It stands alone as a romantic gesture for any cheese lover! We will also be offering a Spread the Love gift set (available in-store only) including a spade cheese knife and paired with the delectable local chocolates of Donna & Company. So spread the love this Valentine’s season by lighting some candles and setting the table with a robust red wine, some crusty bread, and Coeur de Fromage.


Serve Coeur de Fromage over ciabatta bread, rye bread, or a croissant next to a bunch of concord grapes. Pair Coeur de Fromage with Saint Emilion, Riesling, Chardonnay, Viognier, Gewürztraminer, or a bubbly Champagne for a match made in heaven.
