It took us five years to create a new Beekman 1802 cheese that's as incredible as our Blaak Cheese. We've finally done it...and the result is our new Ghoast cheese. Ghoast is a raw, aged cheese made from 100% goat milk from Farmer John's best milkers. While chalk-white when first made, it is aged for three months to develop its distinctive velveteen grayish-blue rind and ivory interior. The rind can be trimmed away, but when left on it gives ghoast a complex combination of sweetness and salty nuttiness, with a semi-firm texture. It's a taste that reminds us of the sun-drenched grasses and herbs that the goats nibble on in the fields of Beekman 1802 Farm.
While Ghoast pairs well with our ginger peach jam, ginger creamed honey, and roasted garlic drizzle, it's also wonderful when served using our Ghoast Maker. This cheese shaving device has roots in 18th century France, and creates perfect ruffled curls (or ghoasts) that heighten its flavor.
Wine pairings: Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, or dry Sherry.
