Day 789 : Angel Food?

Nope not the light and airy cake that is deeply ingrained in American food culture dating back to Pennsylvania in the 1800s. This Angel Food is a bloomy rinded goat's milk cheese hailing from Prairie Fruits Farm in Champaign, Illinois. A ladled curd cheese that is aged for approximately two weeks, this youngster is decadently creamy and luscious but light and fluffy with a nice chalky, citrusy, tangy bright bent. An extremely thin rind protects the interior paste until you delve in. Great with a mineral forward, crisp, bright young white wine.
