Aged six months or more, Midnight Moon® is a blushing, ivory-colored goat cheese that’s nutty and brown buttery upfront with a long caramel finish. Similar to a Gouda, as Midnight Moon® ages, protein crystals form and lend a slight crunch to the otherwise dense and smooth cheese. Know someone who (gasp!) doesn’t like goat cheese?
Encourage them to dip their toes back in the water with Midnight Moon®, which has been known to convert even the staunchest of goat cheese critics.
Serve with fig jam and seeded crackers or bread
Try melted between slices of rustic bread or as a decadent addition to macaroni and cheese

Like other soft-ripened cheeses, Truffle Tremor® has a bloomy rind that allows the cheese to ripen from the outside in. As Truffle Tremor® continues to ripen and mature, the creamline develops and the flavor intensifies — an ooey-gooey, ripe Truffle Tremor is not for the faint of heart.
Top on a hot steak or juicy burger - allow the cheese to soften as the meat rests.

To optimize the quality of Truffle Tremor, keep cheese cold (32°–40°F) and wrapped in waxed paper. Re-wrapping your cheese in wax or parchment paper will allow the cheese to breathe as it continues to ripen. Remove Truffle Tremor from the refrigerator at least one hour before serving.

Bright and citrusy flavors work best, avoid anything too sweet. Choose a Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Dry Gewürztraminer, Champagne, Syrah, Chianti, & Sangiovese.
Beer Pairing: Choose light-bodied & wheat-based. Strong hops & carbonation add a refreshing cleanse to the palate such as Ales, Lagers, Pilsners, & Hefeweitzen.

After enzymes have been added to fresh milk and allowed to set up, the whey is drained off leaving beautiful fresh curds behind. It's these curds that are then pressed together to create cheese.
At Face Rock, they pull some of these curds aside so that you can enjoy one of the most delightful treasures we've ever tasted-- Fresh Cheese Curds!
Curds are best when served at room temperature or slightly warmed (5 - 10 seconds in the microwave would do it!) Enjoy them battered and fried, chopped up and mixed into soup or simply as a snack on their own!

Sometimes compared to Brie, Fromager d'Affinois has a white, flossy rind but the interior paste is much more ivory in color. The texture is soft, smooth and yielding, with a tendency to become runny under the rind and remain quite a bit firmer in the center - thereby creating two textures in one.
Flavors are mild and subdued, with notes of salt and a slight hint of mushrooms.
Pairs well with many wines. However, it goes particularly well with champagne or sparkling wine, since the effervescence cuts the richness of the cheese and cleanses the palate.
