KunikMADE BY NETTLE MEADOW ARTISAN CHEESE IN THURMAN, NEW YORK
Chef Marc Murphy says...
I love cheese. I mean: I really, really love cheese (I am 50% French, so there’s that). This Kunik from Nettle Meadow Farm in New York State is creamy deliciousness.
Kunik is the ultimate triple play – a triple cream combining the lemony tang of goat's milk, the richness of cow's cream, and the irresistibly earthy umami-bomb of bloomy white cheeses (think brie, but better). This is the perfect cheese for a romantic evening, a festive brunch or a fancy picnic.
Winner of the 2010 American Cheese Society award for best triple cream, this gorgeous wheel had us down for the count at first taste. KO.
Tip of the tongue
Buttery cream begs for maple. Enjoy Kunik at sunrise with Anarchy In A Jar's Easy Like Sunday Morning Blueberry Preserves, made with real maple syrup. Indulge with roasted pecans for a fun dessert course.
