Cheese wrapper of the month

Cheese wrapped in shiny blue foil with drawing of dairy maid

This wheel of cheese landed in my shopping basket simply because I liked the wrapper. It’s a simple, soft-ripened cheese, like a large, plain-tasting Camembert. The label declares it a handmade (actually, “hand-cheesed”) speciality of Saxony, flavored with caraway. Neither the typography nor the illustration are the world’s most refined, but I like their straightforwardness and the bold colors. Amidst the drop-shadows and photos of “serving suggestions” in the dairy case, this cheese feels honest and homey.

    “Hand-cheesed!” What a marvelous phrase.
