New Year, New Cheese
Humboldt County-based cheese producer Cypress Grove has been crafting award-winning, internationally-renowned cheeses since 1983 and at this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco from January 19 to 21, 2020 at booth #2143, the brand will be showcasing new additions to their goat cheese line, including the unveiling of a completely new flavor combination of one of the world’s favorite soft-ripened cheeses, Humboldt Fog®.
It’s no secret that cheese is a favorite accompaniment to other indulgences, such as chocolate and spice, and with these new varieties Cypress Grove is combining the flavor profiles you know and trust. Kicking off the new decade with these cheesy combinations, they’re slated to roll out quarterly offerings starting this spring. Humboldt Fog® is one of the most well-known and beloved cheeses in America and now internationally, and in 2020, cheesemaker Cypress Grove debuts three nationally-available cheeses that put a new twist on the classic soft-ripened cheese that features a distinctive ribbon of edible vegetable ash.
The Original American Original® — double remixed
The Humboldt Fog Remix line rolled out in 2017 with seasonally rotating, limited edition cheeses featuring ribbons of herbs and spices replacing Humboldt Fog’s classic line of black ash. The 2020 Remixes take it to the next level: they’re double remixed. The Humboldt Fog Remix line now combines each limited edition flavor into the cheese paste, so not only does each wheel highlight a flavorful ribbon through its center — just like previous Remixes — but it now provides a bigger, bolder taste in each and every bite.
- Dill Remix (Spring 2020): Brightening up a new season with a remix featuring dill and hand-harvested dill pollen, paying homage to fresh disk PsycheDillic®, with a surprising depth of flavor with a tart and bright finish.
- Chipotle Cacao Remix (Summer 2020): The most unique of the line and deviant to traditional Cypress Grove flavors, this remix highlights chipotles and a distinctive ribbon of locally-made Dick Taylor chocolate through the center — the slow burn of smoked peppers with a hint of smooth dark chocolate. Chipotle peppers are mixed into the cheese for added kick.
- Haze Remix (Fall 2020): A play on the iconic Purple Haze® fresh disk, this remix provides hints of lavender and hand-harvested wild fennel pollen — utterly addictive and unforgettable, with the ribbons of flavors are woven into the ash.
Please join us for “Brûlée Happy Hour” taking place Sunday – Tuesday from 2:00pm – 3:00pm and savor bites of Humboldt Fog with caramelized sugar on top. The perfect savory/sweet combination!
