Anyone Remember Catahoula?
Maybe 10 or 12 years ago I had one of the most delicious American cheeses I ever tasted, then and now. It was from Louisiana and it was Catahoula. I don't know the producer but I believe it was a small artisanal farm in Louisiana. That cheese was second only to epoisse in my book: rich, unctuous, funky cheese that simply was a powerhouse. It disappeared and I could only find out that the makers had closed shop. Rumour had it they moved to Canada and were looking for a friendlier environment in which to experiment with non-traditional cheeses. Anyone know anything about them? I'd try any cheese they are making now and I'd beg for a return to Catahoula production.
Yes l remember it fondly, stinky and wonderfully so. Even when l sold it , was very difficult cheese to get as production was not dependable but flew out of the counter when we had it.
You might want to try Red Hawk from Cowgirl Creamery. most W(t)F's have it. Just let it mature in your reefer until 1-2 weeks after the use by date.
