Ruby is a Stracchino-style blended cow and sheep milk cheese, very loosely inspired by Robiola cheese and similar to the traditional sheep milk cheeses Brebirousse and Perail. The cheese is washed during the first two weeks of aging, which adds a faint rosy hue beneath the powdery white rind that grows in after.
Farm notes: Drink with an oaky Chardonnay or mild creamy beers. Serve with spicy arugula salad or a variety of charcuterie. Due to the subtlety of this cheese, it lends itself beautifully to cooking. It will enhance and complement almost anything. A Green Dirt favorite is to use Ruby on a flatbread pizza with pesto, caramelized onions and walnuts!
