New York Magazine's Holiday Cheese Guide

New York Magazine has posted a holiday guide to cheese, curated by Max McCalman, Maître Fromager of Artisanal and Picholine. One cheese in particular that caught my eye was the Swiss Flixer, made by the venerable alpine cheesemaker Rolf Beeler (who also makes one of last week's cheeses of the week, Hoch Ybrig). A sheep's-milk cheese that is "dense and relatively mild, with a delicate, slightly sweet chestnut flavor, 'it’s one of the holy-grail cheeses,' says McCalman." Something I definitely have to try. Speaking of Rolf Beeler, the cheese of the week this week will also be one of his amazing alpine creations: Prättigauer. Tune in later in the week for details.
