Uplands Cheese Company makes some of the most beautiful American cheeses to date. Based in Dodgeville, Wisconson, their impressively small team goes through amazing feats of milking their cows seasonally and perfecting two cheeses, Pleasant Ridge Reserve and Rush Creek reserve, soon to be in-stock here at the Cheese Grotto store.
Today, you can order Pleasant Ridge, available to ship every Monday. Pleasant Ridge Reserve is modeled after the French Beaufort, but it is it's own form of delicious. Made solely with lush, fresh summer grasses the milk is sweet and grassy, making for a powerfully complex and nuanced cheese with an aroma of bread and light-bodied honey, tasting of buttery hazelnut and cremini mushrooms, and delicate protein crystals in the texture.
We'll include literature on storing, serving, and pairing the cheese.
The two different-sized wedges available (1.25 lbs and 2.5 lbs) fit in the Cheese Grotto Classico and the Cheese Grotto Fresco and will keep for two months if well-maintained.
