If you happen to be going to the Downtown Ypsi Farmers’ Market today (or any other Tuesday this month), do yourself a favor and print out this new coupon for Zingerman’s Creamery. If you do, you’ll get some of their “Little Ypsi” aged goat’s milk cheese for free, assuming, of course, you buy something else from them. Here’s how they describe the cheese, which, I’m told, is akin to a French crottin. (I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good.) “It has a beautiful, buttery-yellow rind,” they say, “and a paste that runs the gamut from dense and soft when younger to firm and flinty as it ages.”
I have no idea why it’s called the Little Ypsi, but I wonder if, just maybe, they’re getting their goat’s milk here. Given that Peter Thomason raises goats downtown, and his daughter Aubrey is a Managing Partner at Zingerman’s Creamery, it may not be that far-fetched… I’ll make a note to ask… If so, I think that would be really cool.
If you do try it, let me know if you like’a the cheese, alright?
