Fiscalini Bandaged Cheddar: just reading about this cheese will have you salivating
I sat down intending to make thoughtful, detailed tasting notes on the Fiscalini Bandaged Cheddar. Instead I found myself consuming slices faster than I could scrawl so much as an exclamation mark. The flavour impact of this raw-milk, farmstead cheese from Modesto, Calif. is so immediate and intense that I swear the savoury, buttery, caramel notes somehow parachute to the taste buds moments before any physical contact is made. Last November it won a Super Gold Award at the 2011 World Cheese Awards in Britain, securing a spot in their “Top 50 cheeses in the World” category.
