    Younger versions of Mahón-Menorca PDO taste buttery, fruity, and tart, overlaid with a slight sourness and hint of salt. With age, these flavors intensify; some older wheels can be very salty and piquant. On Menorca, this cheese is traditionally enjoyed sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper, olive oil, and tarragon. The cheese needs an assertive wine to stand up to its intense flavors, such as Madeira or a Rioja. Learn more at the link in bio.

    The cheeses made in Illinois uniquely Midwestern. That unbroken horizon, the rows and rows of soy and wheat, are a microclimate all their own, where water is filtered through limestone bedrock and cows can be grass-grazed nearly year-round. ⁠

    While @linnikral grew up in this prairie landscape, she took a road trip viewing it through the eyes of a newcomer: "It’s a world all its own, and one you might have to see to believe." ⁠
