OCTA guest blogger Vanessa Simmons returns this week for another edition of “Curd on the Street”.
Having recently made its debut in the Ontario market, Morning Moon is Fifth Town Artisan Cheese Co.�s newest cow’s milk cheese is the sister cheese to Cape Vessey (goat�s milk version) that we all know and love. A tour of their LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified facility is a must-stop for your next Prince Edward County getaway.

Morning Moon is a washed rind single note cow�s milk cheese, naturally aged. A thick terracotta-coloured rind covers the chewy, dense, firm, creamy, pale butter yellow paste. Savour full on flavour � earthy mixed with salt, fruit and a hint of spice. Pairs beautifully with a medium to full-bodied red wine such as a County Cabernet Franc or Pinot Noir.
