Made by Landaff Creamery and matured by Cellars at Jasper Hill, Kinsman Ridge is a semi-soft, tomme-style cheese made with raw cow milk. Deb and Doug Erb’s second cheese, following their debut Landaff, is inspired by French tommes like St. Nectaire.
Kinsman Ridge wheels are matured for 3-5 months during which they mature from a firm consistency to a creamy interior. Flavours vary from rich, savoury, and delicate floral with undertones of roasted artichoke and asparagus.
Kinsman Ridge is a perfect choice on a cheeseboard. Drinks such as Sauvignon Blanc, wheat beer, or saucisson sec make great accompaniments. The mottled, rustic rind is edible and need not be removed before sectioning.
