Mooning over new tasty County cheese

Having recently made its debut on the Ontario market, Morning Moon is Fifth Town Artisan Cheese Co.’s newest cow’s milk cheese, and the sister cheese to Cape Vessey (goat’s milk version) that we all know and love. A tour of their LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified facility is a must-stop for your next Prince Edward County getaway. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of master cheesemaker Stephanie Diamont working her cheese-y magic.

Morning Moon is a washed rind single note cow’s milk cheese, naturally aged. A thick terracotta-coloured rind covers the chewy, dense, firm, creamy, pale butter yellow paste. Savour full on flavour – earthy mixed with salt, fruit and a hint of spice. Pairs beautifully with a medium to full-bodied red wine such as a County Cabernet Franc or Pinot Noir.
