I guess you can figure out my theme for the 2014 A to Z Blogging Challenge. That’s right, it’s cheese!  I hope you enjoy these posts!

“L” is for LAPPI

No, not Limburger, that smelly cheese! (I know some of you are guessing – so let’s just say that from L to Z, there are maybe half a dozen that are familiar – the rest of the posts should serve as something new and different) 🙂

Lappi, as you can imagine, originated in the Lapland region of Finland. It’s derived from skimmed cow’s milk, and is similar to Emmentaler (Swiss) cheese, except that the milk is pasteurized. It’s smooth and creamy, and gluten-free. Lappi pairs well with a Riesling.

  1. Visiting from the A to Z challenge – fun posts! Since you were posting about obscure cheeses, did you know about reindeer cheese? I don’t know the precise name of it (I tasted it in Norway and at a Finnish family’s American home)… it could be fun to know about. And boy is it SQUEAKY! So maybe it wouldn’t go with a beverage, but with a musical instrument… lol.

  2. Wow……..finally. Sorry Martha, but I have to say this; for a “cheese heathen” like myself, your picture is almost a relief. I know it’s not what I think it is, but I almost regcognize this block of cheese. I liked the blog anyway!
