Day 961 : Great Right Now at Murray's

What should you get to kick off your 3 day weekend at Murray's?

Well I recommend :

Von Trapp Farmstead's Oma -- Crafted by the real live Von Trapp family, of the Sound of Music fame, this is a raw cow's milk washed rind cheese aged for between two and three months at the fantastic Cellars at Jasper Hill. Oma, meaning grandmother is named for Erica von Trapp, the grandmother of the siblings that currently run the Vermont cheese, beer, and inn operation in Stowe. Oma walks the most perfect line of earthy, rustic, farmsteady, washed rind stink and silky smooth buttery milky sweetness. This unique washed rind Vermont creation has the most fabulously dynamic depth and breadth of flavor nuances and is absolutely totally and completely perfect right now! I would enjoy it with a local cider, perhaps one of Farnum Hill Ciders  -- think of the classic Normandy style pairing of Pont L'Eveque and local cider.
