San Joaquin GOLD from Fiscalini Farmstead Cheese

My first contact with this wonderful cheese was at an event at Sunset Magazine a number of years ago when my station was right next to the station of master cheesemaker Mariano Gonzalez of Fiscalini Farmstead Cheese. We were both under the tent of Jane St. Clair’s SAVOR California and this cheese was not just some of the finest of its kind in the state but also the world! It was actually a cheese that was a mistake- it was intended to be a fontina but ended up being its own unique cheese that has, in my opinion, a buttery sharp cheddar edge.

 

I was reintroduced to this cheese by Kristen Dietz, the new cheese specialist at my favorite Nugget Market in Elk Grove,CA. Thanks Kristen, Fiscalini’s San Joaquin GOLD is this months featured cheese! Read more about San Joaquin GOLD.
