Atlanta’s Cheese Culture

Sometimes I feel like a walking, talking French cliche. Pessimist? Check. Contrarian? Check. Obsessed with cheese? Check! I can’t remember a time when I didn’t eat cheese, and while I would rather die than drink a sip of milk, I have internalized the sentiment of immortal epicurean Brillat-Savarin that “a meal without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye.”

Of course the bark gives the cheese a bit of a woodsy character, but it also can taste beefy and pleasantly salty, and even a bit smoky and fruity. The cheese at the edge of the rind even takes on a piny sweetness.
