Rocket's RobiolaBoxcarr Cheese
About this item
Somewhere between a vegetable-ashed Loire Valley bloomy rind and a Piedmontese Robiola, these near-three-quarter-pound square pack as much flavor into a cheeseboard as they do appearance. Dusted in vegetable ash before developing a doughy, wrinkled rind, the pasteurized cow’s milk begins tangy, bright and chalky, but continuously breaks down from week to week into a slow, oozing paste with notes of butter-roasted mushroom and toasted almond. Each piece is about 1 pound.
