Is this the world's cutest cheese?
These diminutive dairy delights are Hannahbells, locally made by the handsome siblings at the Shy Brothers Farm in Westport, Massachusetts.
They have a fabulously buttery texture, firm and creamy and yielding, with a gentle pungency that's bold and Brie-like. And they come in different flavors, including shallot, lavender and chipotle. The Boy brought home the rosemary variety, in which the herb adds a subtle, summery note and was a lovely addition to a roasted beet and arugula salad.
And did I mention that they're frickin' cute? Look at them! Hardly bigger than grapes!
Awww ... (goes off to eat another handful).
