Best New Cheeses of 2010: SF Weekly and Gordon Edgar count them down

American cheesemakers have been hard at work bringing new and exciting cheeses to market this year. The art of creating even the most tried and true cheeses are a test to even the most experienced artisan. Attempting new formulas, flavor combinations, and aging processes can bring about hundreds of heartache before that perfect melding is achieved.

Gordon Edgar, cheesemonger at San Francisco’s Rainbow Market, fellow cheese blogger,  and author of Cheesemonger, Life on the Wedge, counts down some of this year’s fabulous fromage newbies as a guest cheese blogger for the SF Weekly. Making the list is one of my personal favorites, Rush Creek Reserve. While we may disagree on how stellar this cheese is (I think it’s spot on fabulous while Gordon feels it’s still a work in progress) his list seems spot on in choosing this year’s stand outs.

You can read the article in it’s entirety here and be sure to check out Gordon’s blog at gordonzola.net. Don’t see that favorite new cheese on the list? Give The Mouse a shout and let us know!

Stay Cheesy!
