Cider Celebrates The American Cheese Plate!

As the American Cheese Society gathers in Sacramento for the annual ACS conference, (with over 1600+ cheeses and 100’s of makers, mongers and curd nerds), our resident cheesemonger – who tweets @ConsiderTheRind & writes on all things cheese at ConsiderTheRind.com – will be heading West to the Festival of Cheese.

Along the ways she’ll stop at The Healdsburg SHED, to team up with Tilted Shed Ciderworks, Devoto Orchards Cider, Gypsy Cheese Co., & Weirauch Farm & Creamery on August 3rd, for what promises to be an exciting East Meets West Cider & Cheese Tasting Workshop, details here.

Get your Brown Paper tickets here!

For more details follow @craftyandbeast #ciderchat (TONIGHT) Thursday, July 24th, 6PM PST/9PM EST – we’ll be #ciderchatting about the upcoming cider & cheese event, and encourage all you cider & cheese fans to ‘pair up’ and create some tasting events of your own.

Cider + Cheese and You. A Tasting with Tilted Shed Ciderworks and DeVoto Orchards Cider.

A Slow Food Russian River Cider + Cheese Tasting Scholarship Fund Benefit Event

When our resident Cheesemonger crafted a fantasy-cheese pairing featuring Tilted Shed Ciderworks 2012 GRAVIVA! Semidry Cider, our cider pen pals at Tilted Shed responded by hosting the First-Ever Sebastopol Cider and Cheese Challenge and invited Apple Sauced Cider to join in. You can read about their cider+cheese pairing adventures here.

Actual Cider + Cheese Pairings are definitely more fun.

REMATCH: Cider + Cheese. A Tasting with Tilted Shed Ciderworks and Apple Sauced Cider.

REMATCH: Cider + Cheese Pairing  

A while back we posted A Cheesemonger’s Challenge: Cider and Cheese Pairing with Tilted Shed Ciderworks 2012 GRAVIVA! Semidry Cider, conceived by our resident cheesemonger, and originally published at: Consider The Rind.

Graviva! label5-13X

The Idea: Select an interesting cider we have yet to try, and relying on the cider maker’s tasting notes, attempt to create a successful (at least on paper) cheese pairing.

Tilted Shed Ciderworks 2012 GRAVIVA! Semidry Cider from Ellen Cavalli and Scott Heath of Tilted Shed Ciderworks in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California, was our cider pick. (You can read the original post here).

In reply to our challenge, the folks at Tilted Shed Ciderworks paired with Jolie Devoto-Wade and Hunter Wade of Apple Sauced Cider, and taking cues from our suggested cheese selection, created their own taste-off adding Apple Sauce Cider’s Save The Gravenstein to the mix.

Expanding on the original, the Sebastopol cider makers cheese selection included several local artisanal cheeses – guided by the pair local ‘what grows together goes together’ principle.
