Up in Smoke, a Review
For awhile I have been wanting to start writing a series of reviews of delicacies that have crossed my path. In part as a fun way to share with Sophia fun new culinary discoveries while we are so far apart, and partly to encourage and celebrate good quality items. Review is not a perfect word because I am not critiquing, I wouldn't take the time to write about something I didn't enjoy, unless my dis-enjoyment was so profound and thought provoking that I had to share (or warn)... And finally the accumulation of new discoveries has reached a point that I must begin.
This delicious cheese came over the bridge to me one rainy night. As soon as I unwrapped the packaging I knew I was in the midst of something special. The fresh goat cheese is smoked in maple and then delicately wrapped in a smoked maple leaf, the smoky flavor is just right... present in every bite, but not overwhelming and the cheese still feels fresh. It's made on the Oregon Coast, visit their website to order some, it looks like they ship! Or, if you live in the Northwest, you can try any of these retail stores that carry Provvista products.
