Four Fat Fowl is one of the new kids on the local cheese block. And oh my gosh, do you ever want to play with this kid. So far they’ve got one new toy on the market, and it’s a luscious triple cream called St Stephen. And 8 oz plop will set you back about $12.50, and let me tell you – it is well worth the price.
Four Fat Fowl had a sampling of their cheese at The Gingerman a few weeks ago. The Simple Treat has a great writeup of Four Fat Fowl and what they’re trying to do. They’re still trying to raise a bit more scratch to make small-scale production viable and have a kickstarter campaign going on.
Smoked salmon canapes with St Stephen cheese, radish and basil oil. I loved this combo, though Albany John thought the salmon blasted the delicate flavor of the cheese. I thought it was richness-on-fat goodness.
This was awesome – a few different ways to try the cheese. A variety of honeys, some fruit, some veg.
I cannot underscore how lovely and creamy this was. And how fresh! It is easily my new favorite cheese, and I’m kicking myself for not picking up a wheel right then and there. You’ve got to try it. They’re currently being stocked at The Cheese Traveler and the Honest Weight Co-Op, though call ahead to see if they have them in stock as they’ve been selling very quickly.
