CCIDA Success Stories: Reverie Creamery
“Tom,” a Tomme style cheese made at the newly opened artisan creamery, won Gold for best Farmstead/Artisan Cheese at the 2016 New York State Fair. Owners Rico Chandra and James Howard are very proud of this win for their new home in Chautauqua County. The texture is open, smooth, and buttery. This young cheese is fruity, reminiscent of stone fruits, with a yogurty tang and a slight finish of candied nuts and sea salt.
