2017 US Championship Cheese Contest -Best of Class- Hard Cheese Category
Named for the towering plateau that envelops Sequatchie Cove Farm, which also happens to be the world's longest hardwood-forested plateau. Cumberland is a simple yet flavorful Tomme-style natural rind cheese with a smooth semi-firm texture. Fruity, earthy, and slightly tangy with notes of sweet hay and cultured buttermilk, its versatility and approachable flavor make it equally at home in the kitchen and on the table.
Pairs nicely with drier white wines such as a dry Riesling, fruity beers, green pears, pecans, and strawberry or cherry preserves. Perfect in salads or melted in almost any dish.
