Pt. Reyes Farmstead 'TomaRashi', Cow's Milk, Pt. Reyes, CA (6 oz, Pasteurized)
The Giacomini family traces its roots to the mountainous terrain of northern Italy. In the early 20th century, Tobias Giacomini left Europe to settle in Northern California. A half-century later, his grandson, Bob, and Bob’s new wife, Dean, bought a farm near Tomales Bay and began raising Holstein cows and selling milk to a local creamery. Their herd grew from 150 to 500 by the mid-1990s, and the farm’s lush pastures are now certified organic. Bob and Dean had four daughters and, in 2000, the family launched the Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company.
TomaRashi, with its blend of heat, umami and nutty flavors, is a total standout in the farmstead's new Toma with Attitude lineup. The key to the flavor is Shichimi Togarashi, a Japanese spice blend containing nori, toasted sesame, poppy and hemp seeds, chili flakes and ginger. The result is a gentle heat that warms your palate gradually, making you want more!
