Redwood Hill Farm Camellia

A Sonoma County Artisan Goat Cheese

Named after one of their favorite does, Camellia is a luscious, goat milk Camembert-style cheese. It has a mild, buttery flavor and firm texture when young, becoming softer and more complex with age. The white, edible penicillum candidum rind ripens the cheese from the outside inwards, becoming fully ripe when the center is soft to the touch (like a ripe peach). This usually occurs after 5-6 weeks, though the cheese is delicious at any age. Wrap cut pieces in its storage-enhancing original wrap and store in a cool environment. It is overripe when the rind looks yellow or rust colored and smells ammoniated. Enjoy this multiple award winner at room temperature, paired with fresh apple or pear and your favorite wine.
