GB's first cheese, and still the favorite. A so-called “critical darling,” the pungent inner paste of Prufrock has a beautiful, thick, soft, and yielding texture. It’s a delicate washed-rind cheese whose tradition and technique hails from Normandy in northern France. But Grey Barn twisted that tradition and technique for a nutty flavor with hints of tropical fruit and sour cream. When ripe, the cheese has a salty and savory flavor that perfectly complements its sweeter overtones
The final result is a supple and stinky cheese known as Prufrock. The rustic orange rind that has developed in the cave encases a delectable soft paste that is golden in color. This hand made certified organic cheese is unique not only because it is lovingly made on Martha’s Vineyard but also because the changes in the pastures seasonally gives subtle changes in the milk. Those subtle flavor changes are transferred into the cheese.
Prufrock is luscious served with a sliced warm baguette and bit of chunky apricot jam on top - even a spicy mango chutney works nicely. In the summer months when you have burgers on the grill serve it as the cheese on your cheeseburger along with a warm bun, onion relish and a bit of sweet ketchup. Prufrock is also terrific as a grilled cheese.
