Hand made in Lena, Illinois, Dorothy’s Comebback Cow is an most unusal artisan cheese. Dorothy Renter, a member of the Kolb family – Kolb-Lena Cheese Company, the creator of this uniquely different cheese was known to work tirelessly or, as they say, until the cows came home, perfecting her soft-ripened cheeses. A true creation, Comeback Cow is made from cow’s milk with rustic fragrant notes in every bite. Nestled in the shape of freshly spring flowers- this bloomy rind cheese in tinged orange with age.
Comeback Cow is creamy with a kick, mild yet complex. This rich and creamy brie has a velvety milk taste that is underlined by sweet and buttery flavors of mushrooms or truffles and almonds. Wild grasses and flowers flavored the milk, packing pungent flavor that keeps coming back- bite after bite.
Comeback Cow is a tasteful, artisan brie best savored as part of your favorite cheese board, although it does lend itself to sandwiches and quiches if you’re after an oozy melt. Pair it with croissants, soft rolls, melons or grapes. It’s always ready for a party, enjoyed with a Bourgogne, Cabernet, or Médoc wine. Silky in texture and nutty, its whipped-cream. It is truly an unusually delicious brie. What more can we say?
NOTE: Our cheeses are shipped with gel packs to retain temperature while in transit. The partial or complete melting of the cold pack can be expected during transit of your order upon arrival.
