Valdeon - goats milk blue cheese? yes please.

Valedon - one of the new additions to our cheese selection is quickly becoming one of our most popular. A goat's milk blue cheese and beautifully full-flavored, this blue cheese is wrapped in Sycamore leaves which is the main reason for it's deliciously intricate flavor - and of course its distinctive appearance. It's an award winner being named the best blue cheese in 2003 in Spain. Gotta love the winners. Pair this beauty with smoked and cured meats for an intense experience and it has also been a fantastic addition on a great steak. Best wine pairings include wine made from the Gamay grape such as Beaujolais, as well as Muscats.
