oil on wood, 10x10"

Chiriboga by mike geno

Rocco at DiBruno Bro.s offered up this surprising Bavarian Blue. I was initially attracted to the idea of it being a German cheese but then fell in love with the creamy, sweet and mild blue that ... makes you think "oh that's right, this is where Bavarian Cream comes from!"

found info in Culture Magazine: "Chiriboga Blue is produced by cheesemaker Arturo Chiriboga at Obere Mühle co-operative dairy. The cheesemaking facility, located in the town of Bad Oberdorf in Bavaria, lies at the foot of Alpe Engratsgund in Hindelang, a stunningly beautiful area in the Bavarian Alps.

Despite the original recipe being modeled on Roquefort, Chiriboga Blue differs quite markedly in that it has a creamier mouthfeel and denser texture. Flavors are mellow and buttery with notes of grass and a bright acidity."
