Day 947 : Torus

Introducing Torus, created by Adeline Druart of Vermont Butter and Cheese specifically for Murray's Cheese.

This donut or otherwise known as couronne (crown) shaped disk of aged goat's milk cheese has arrived just in time for the holidays! Named after the geometric term for the ring shape of the cheese, Torus surely wows -- a unique partnership between one of my favorite Vermont creameries and one of the major cheese shops in New York. Vermont Butter and Cheese crafts this geotrichum rinded pasteurized goat's milk donut that is then aged in the cellars at Murray's for anywhere between two and four weeks.

Dense, creamy, unctuous with a mushroomy, rustic, earthiness and the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness, Torus does not disappoint. The rind has the most fabulous texture that just melts in your mouth and coats every crevice, enjoy with a nice glass of Cava this holiday season.

Nothing says holiday hostess gift better than a cheese in the shape of a donut crafted by the brilliant minds behind Murray's Cheese and Vermont Butter and Cheese.
