Summer is all about road trips, and there is no better way to make new culinary discoveries than when you're on the road. And what a discovery we made when we stopped by the Cato Corner Farm in Colchester, CT to try their famous raw milk cheeses.
The limited batch of farmstead cheeses range from mild to funky, all unlike anything we've ever tasted before. If you're in the area I highly recommend stopping by for a tasting and to see their adorable Jersey cows. You can also find their products in farmer's markets around Connecticut and New York.
We brought home some of the Dairyere, similar to Gruyere, which was hands-down our favorite. This cheese deserved a proper spread so I served straight-up with crostini, fig jam, pate, and green apple. Add some wine for the perfect post road trip meal!
