Cheese: Der Weichen Gehl Kase

$16.90 $13.52

Description: This is a pasteurized cows milk cheese.
Goot Essa Der Weichen Gehl is an Amish rendering of a classic brie or camembert-style cheese. Hand-made from pasteurized cow milk according to their traditional recipe. A mild, yet exceptionally buttery cheese with soft lingering flavors of tangy cream; the slightly nutty rind is gentle and well-integrated into the smooth rich center. Aged for 60 days, with a supple texture that rolls across the palate with a creamy ease. This cheese is perfect on a cheese board, both as appetizers and as desserts, and it really broadens the scope of a charcuterie board. Der Weichen Gehl is perfect when baked with locally produced honey or sugared nuts. It adds depth to salads and casseroles. This cheese is the perfect pairing with cured meats, and most nuts, and all fruits except citrus. It also pairs well with crisp dry white wines and light, slightly fruity red wines. Placed on French bread, it also pairs perfectly with light pilsners and Belgium wheat beers.

Storage: Shelf life 4 weeks. Once opened, rewrap every fews days to maintain freshness. 

Goot Essa

Goot Essa began in 2001 with a group of Amish dairy farmers who worked together to produce high quality cheese with some of their milk. Their goal then, as now, was to use their cheese-making expertise to provide enough extra income to keep their families on the farm. They have chosen to work their fields in the traditional way, with horse and manpower instead of machines. This means that their farms will be small, but each acre and each animal is cared for with love and the respect of nature because theirs are true family farms. Their goal is to offer food products made from the freshest, highest quality, all-natural ingredients. They make it all by hand, in small quantities, giving each one their individual attention. In the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect, “Goot Essa” means “good food” or “good eating.” It seems only natural to name their group Goot Essa, because they want you to share in their love of hand-made, good old-fashioned food—food with all the subtlety that means slowly aged and gourmet. Goot Essa, because they want you to share their love of recipes passed down over hundreds of years. That is their story—pride in the past, with hope for the future—Goot Essa.
