AmeribellaMADE BY JACOBS & BRICHFORD IN CONNERSVILLE, INDIANA
This soft, smooth cheese tastes surprisingly sweet and lemony. Don't be misled by the earthy, slightly funky aroma. The orange rind adds a nice bite, so be sure to get a little in each taste.
This Indiana farmhouse take on the classic Italian cheese Taleggio gets its name from America Arabella, cheesemaker Matthew Brichford's great grandmother.
One bite will have you humming “America the Beautiful."
Tip of the tongue
You can do so much with Ameribella (slice it, melt it on toast, stuff a chicken breast, shred and toss with pasta), but nothing is quite as satisfying as scooping out a mouthful onto a hunk of baguette. Pop on a few blueberries and strawberries for your patriotic pleasure.
