Point Reyes Blue Cheese- Now Kosher!

Josh and I made a late night stop to the Cheese Man at Fairway who, to his surprise and ours, discovered the recent kosher certification (KORC, The San Francisco Orthodox Rabbinate) of POINT REYES BLUE CHEESE!!!!!! Now, ever since having heard of this magical cheese from Foodgoat and Ladygoat (a hearty mazal tov to them on their recent wedding!) I have been lamenting its non-kosher status. But I weep no more, for all my cheese-related lament has turned to gladness and my tyrosination-bereft darkness to blue, creamy, tangy delight with the advent of this wondrous cheese!
Expect more cooking and talking about this cheese first, assuming we don't just eat the whole wheel straight or on wasa crackers.

Wonderful post Miriam! There is also an amazing kosher Roquefort at Zabar's (or was--cheeses are available unpredictably) definitely the real thing with the Roquefort imprimatur and seal and everything.

It wasn't cheap.

They've got the Roquefort--I just ordered some--your post flung me into a cheesy frenzy--How will I last until Tuesday? Thankful for Sprout Creek Farm cheeses to sustain me until then.
