The Flavor Experience
A wonderfully complex cheese from Dodgeville, WI. Pleasant Ridge is rich and savory with notes of everything from toasted hazelnuts to cooked mushrooms. A cheese that can be loved by the hardcore curd nerd and the cheese newbie.
Pleasant Ridge is specifically modelled after the French alpine classic Beaufort. The cheesemakers made the decision to make an alpine cheese after extensive research into both their own property and the history of the driftless region of Wisconsin where Uplands Cheese Co. is located.
What does not PRR pair with? Best friends with some some savory charcuterie like Petit Jesu or Saucisson Sec. Try it with a little Riesling or Vin Juane for a classic alpine feel or play up its natural sweetness it with a nice Manhattan.
