Lakin's Gorges Cheese is run by Head Cheesemaker and Owner Allison Lakin on East Forty Farm in Waldoboro, Maine. Her cow milk cheeses are distinctly artisan and small-batch, and she's been committed to the craft since 2011.
Opus 42, 8oz - A dense, aged cow milk cheese with a buttermilk tang, this cheese is one-of-a-kind with a texture that is crumbly and fudgy all at once. This is an excellent table cheese, perfect for snacking, leaving out on the counter during the week, or grating over pizza and pasta.
Prix de Diane, 8oz - Creamy and decadent, this brie-style has a thick, spreadable texture that softens as it ripens. It is more tangy and bright when young, and develops into a soft texture with earthy, mushroom flavors.
Rockweed, 8oz - This award-winning bloomy rind contains a ribbon of bladderwrack seaweed in the center. It is both briny and creamy, and has been awarded the Silver Medal 2019 Big E Cheese Competition, as well as Yankee Magazine Editor's Choice Top 10 Foods in New England, November 2019
The cheese fits well in the Grotto Classico, Grotto Fresco, Grotto Mezzo, or Grotto Piatto.
We'll include literature on the best way to store and serve the cheese.
