The artisanal beauty of Celebrity’s Ashlyn goat cheese starts with its lyrical name, widely translated as “a vision” or “dream.” This soft-ripened cheese is a stunning vision, from the delicate, bloomy rind to the smooth, snowy interior that has been hand dipped in a thin layer of edible vegetable ash. The dark center line of ash against the brilliant white paste creates the cheese’s wedding cake-like charm.
The taste is just as dreamy, with a delicious, subtly lemon tang and earthy, herbaceous overtones that come from using only 100% fresh and creamy Canadian goat’s milk.
This award-winning chèvre is made with a pure and poetic passion that is lovely to behold and even lovelier to eat.
Application: Ashlyn’s creamy, clean and mild taste makes it very versatile. When not adding elegance to a table or cheese tray as an appetizer or dessert, Celebrity Ashlyn is great in salads and adds depth to pasta dishes. Matching it with mushrooms brings out the cheese’s earthiness, drizzling Ashlyn with honey or fruit spreads creates a divine, combined sweetness. Celebrity’s Ashlyn makes a delicious pair with pears, dates, apples and warm, crusty bread.
Pairing: Go with robust red wines, a Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc for a white or a wheat beer will also work nicely.
