Made by Parish Hill Creamery (a creamery focused on making cheese the whey things were done before industrialization: with in-house milk, cultures, and rennet), the Cornerstone is a product of the larger Cornerstone project: a collaborative effort by American cheesemakers to develop a new “American Original”- a cheese that isn’t the property of one single cheesemaker (think Jack, Muenster, Swiss, etc).
Buttery and yogurty, with the slightest hint of tangy-funk. Best eaten in thin slices, perhaps paired with similarly-thin slices of apple. We also suggest having roasted almonds nearby- a little sweet, fruity, creamy, and nutty all in one plate.
