Black Castello

oil on wood, 8x8"

black castello by mike geno

This Danish blue cheese comes in an unusual pentagonal shaped wheel with a rind that looks almost black at times. Mine started turning slightly whiter after I brought it home, which only added to a curious texture which was fun to paint. It's made with both sheep's and cow's milk.

Unlike most blues, this one is mellow, buttery and with little bite. It's creamy and delicious enough to eat too much, too quickly.
