I stopped by the cheese counter at Whole Foods while picking up some dinner for tonight. (Who am I kidding? The cheese counter is my dinner tonight.) I was delighted to find a cheese I had hoped to introduce to Danielle and Richard when they were in town, but my usual cheese shop hadn’t received any yet this season.
Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on the Wabash Cannonball. Produced by Capriole Farms in Indiana, Wabash Cannonball is very similar to Bonne Bouche; both are creamy, surface ripened goat cheeses, and both have natural rinds dusted with vegetable ash. I find the Wabash Cannonball tastes a bit brighter, where the Bonne Bouche is earthier with a slight peppery finish. Both are delicious to eat with fresh bread and a glass of Sokol Blosser Evolution (or sauvignon blanc), and both are currently in my belly.
