Day 1031 : Vermont Creamery's Coupole

Today was the beginning of my annual weekend in Vermont for the Cheesemakers festival. A yearly event showcasing the most fantastic cheeses, wines, beers, and more. Sure, it's a long drive up to Burlington but boy is it worth it!

After a stop at the Brattleboro Farmers Market, Bayley Hazen Blue Dark Chocolate Truffles from Laughing Moon chocolates, the Trapp Family Lodge, and more en route, we arrived at our first major stop for the weekend - Vermont Creamery's Summertime kickoff cocktail party.

Plenty  of Vermont Creamery cheeses were on offer but probably the best was a new experimental cheese strictly for the evening - smoked Coupole! Unique in that aged goat's milk rarely is rarely smoked and boy was it fantastic! Perfect with a glass of Pinot noir. 

What a great beginning to the weekend
