We met a wild purveyor of mushrooms at a local farmers market. We have worked together to develop a Wild Mushroom chanterelle and chives cheese. It is one of our favorites because the flavor description escapes us. It has a hint of bacon, but yet the flavor is more like an earthy goodness. The chives give an almost onion, or is it garlic flavor? The stirred curd cheddar base is so smooth and soft it melts on the tongue. We need to taste more to figure the exact flavor.
