The Cheese Whisperer: Nuzzle Up with Ipanema
From the award-winning cheese makers at Beehive Cheese Company comes a new, lovely creation known as Ipanema cheese. It is an Irish-style aged made from pasteurized cow’s milk cheese that is hand-rubbed with Sierra Nevada Cultured Butter and Crio Brew cocoa beans sourced from the Vega Real Valley in the Dominican Republic.
Ipanema’s name is inspired by the popular jazz song “Girl from Ipanema”, a particular favorite of Beehive’s co-owner Tim Welsh. Take a bite and let this cheese transport you to a warm, sunny Brazilian beach with hints of roasting chocolate wafting through the air. Made with the milk of Jersey cows in Northern Utah, this rich cheese is creamy and evokes the rich flavors of roasted chocolate and the tang of ripe strawberries.
