An Herbed Cheese With Roots in Corsica
Like your cheeses bold? Try Hudson Flower, an herb-y sheep's milk round from the Hudson Valley. The cheese is first made at Old Chatham Sheepherding Company and then sent to Murray's in New York City to age. The cheese is an homage to Fleur du Maquis, better known as Brin d’Amour, a popular Corsican cheese.
The smooth, tangy interior acquires a mellow, satiny rim, which is flattered by the edible, fragrantly piney herb-dusted rind. And just as the Hudson Valley is a gentler place than volcanic Corsica, the herbs are not quite as aggressive as on the original.
