Choose from the local cheeses below to put together a beautiful, tasty platter.

Ingredients

  • Mount Townsend Creamery Seastack: A soft, complex, rind-ripened cheese from Port Townsend. The creamery uses the traditional method of wrapping the young cheese in a dusting of vegetable ash to draw off the whey. This gives the cheese a slightly smoky tang and lovely mottled rind. Add to list
  • Mount Townsend Creamery Red Alder and Off Kilter: Both of these cheeses are hand washed during the ripening process to give them a nutty, earthy flavor and sweet finish. The Off Kilter is washed with Pike Brewing Company’s Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale. Add to list
  • Tieton Farm and Creamery Fresh Chevre: A small wheel of very fresh, creamy cheese made from a blend of Nubian goat and sheep’s milk. The farm is located in Tieton, Wash., in the heart of the Yakima Valley. Add to list
  • Samish Bay Cheese 2 Month Gouda: A traditional Dutch cheese with a lively piquant flavor and silky-smooth texture. Samish Bay is an excellent small creamery located in the Skagit Valley. Add to list
  • Rogue Creamery Smokey Blue: A delightful, creamy blue cheese from Central Point, Ore., which is cold-smoked for 16 hours over hazelnut shells, giving it a touch of caramel flavor that contrasts perfectly with the sharp tang of the cheese. Add to list
