We present to you the beauty that is Minuet. Direct to us from Soyoung Scanlan at Andante Dairy in Petaluma. Minuet is a wonderful soft-mold rinded Triple Cream goat cheese, with a creamy outside and a more firm cakey center.
Souyoung Scanlan is a pretty amazing lady. From their website:
After studying life science and dairy science and working as a biochemist and a dairy scientist, Soyoung decided to become a cheese maker.
She named her company Andante, which is the tempo mark for many songlike movements that indicates a moderate rate of speed of a strolling walk, in order to describe her longing for the slower speed of life and the proper speed of traditional cheese making.
Her cheese is named after musical terms, e.g. Adagio, Rondo, and Nocturne to represent her love of music and her personified image of her cheese.
