Part of the wave of new southern cheesemakers, the English family just got licensed for cheesemaking last year. I discovered them while researching the Western North Carolina Cheese Trail (weekend getaway idea!) Buttercup is a fresh cheese inspired by Wisconsin brick cheese that they learned to make while studying with master WI makers. I describe it as the ultimate melting cheese with the creaminess of monterey jack and the tanginess of cheddar. Easy going and snackable. Pasteurized cows milk.
