Ask any cheesemonger about Harbison, and you'll get a smile. We all love this rich, unctuous, spreadable cheese. Wrapped in a strip of spruce bark that infuses the paste with herbal, earthy flavors, Harbison is lovely on its own with freshly baked bread or as the centerpiece of a board, surrounded by jams, meats, and fruit.
Beverage pairings: Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, dry ciders, earthy Pet Nats, black coffee
Accompaniments: Blake Hill Raspberry Mostarda, caramelized onions, potatoes, cured meats...or just a spoon
