Day Fifty: Golden Moments

As it is the fiftieth day of writing to you all, I thought we should celebrate! It's our golden anniversary and for that celebration I decided to give you all a golden pairing to brighten your spirits on such a dreary and cold day and bring you luck for the week.

While meandering through the Union Square Greenmarket yesterday, I came upon a new chevre from Lynnhaven Goat Cheeses from Pine Bush, NY. They make fantastic local and fresh chevres that are rubbed in everything from rosemary to southwest chipotle to cinnamon and dried cranberries to chives and more. Each delicious and unique with that fantastic fresh goat cheese tang! I had never noticed however that they made a chevre with orange, honey and toasted walnuts before. An excellent flavor dance on your tongue and our golden cheese of choice for today!

Pairing with this cheese is the Juve y Camps 2005 Brut Nature Gran Reserva Cava that you can find for $15.99 at Union Square Wines. This sparkler is bright, minerally, slighty fruit but yet crisp and all around great match for our sweet yet tangy and fresh chevre.

A nice, simple yet celebratory pairing for our fiftieth day together and a great way to brighten up your grey Sunday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend ladies and gents!
