Made in the style of an Italian Taleggio, this washed-rind goat cheese from Baetje Farms has a wonderful earthy richness, without the tell-tale goat "musk" that many dislike. Paired with naturally sweet honeycomb from Joy Stinger's bees and fresh, late season pears, this combination will leave your palate satiated with a final sweet and salty balance. Find these products at various local farmer's markets.
