Zoom Cheese Grotto Grey Barn & Farm | Eidolon, 14oz

Grey Barn & Farm | Eidolon, 14oz

$36.00
off
Each day, Grey Barn & Farm's team of four cheesemakers on Martha's Vineyard carefully turn the wheels of Eidolon cheese as it ages, and the bloomy rind is patted down. Eidolon evolves through two distinctive flavor profiles as it matures. In its younger stage, Eidolon’s bloomy rind features hints of portobello mushroom, complemented by a citric, lemony, and tangy firm center. As the cheese ages, the flavor profile deepens, offering earthy notes of the forest floor, cultured butter, and a nuanced hint of something reminiscent of potato chips. With time, the texture transforms from a firm center to a satiny, gooey, flowing paste, achieving its peak ripeness for a truly indulgent experience.

About the Producer

Grey Barn & Farm is a small, diversified New England family farm located on Martha's Vineyard. Their cheeses are certified organic and critically acclaimed. Founded in 2009 by Eric and Molly Glasgow, Grey Barn is one of the few entirely grassed-based dairies in the country, meaning the cows rely on nutrition provided by the pasture in the summer and dry hay in the winter. Their cows are a blend of hardy Dutch Belted and Normande genetics, providing superior milk for cheesemaking.

Serving Suggestions

Pair with sparkling white wine, apricot or fig jam, and prosciutto.

My Favorite Part Of Winter!

I look forward to this cheese every year. It is a show-stopper on any cheeseboard and its pairings-- don't even get me started! This cheese is my excuse to keep potato chips in the house. It is so good, I have to ship my parents a wheel as well each season! Cannot wait to dig into a wheel this year.
