One of my favorite qualities of aged cheeses, like Blaak, is its durability. Ash acts as a natural defense against oxidation and it is nearly impossible to find this cheese "off." This is the perfect choice to have wrapped well (no plastic please!) in the back of the refrigerator, as it will stand the test of time. Just a little edge trimming and you’ve become the fabulous NY hostess with the very elegant cheese plate at a minute’s notice. And better yet, it will undoubtedly match your Louboutins!
You can buy whole 2-3 pound wheels direct from Beekman 1802 or smaller pieces are available at Murray's Cheese, Garden of Eden, Saxelby Cheese, and Stinky Brooklyn.
