Hook’s Cheese (Mineral Point, WI) Debuting 15 Year Old Cheddar Sat, 12/5/09 7:48 AM (permalink)
This is a great article about Tony and Julie Hook from Wisconsin:
http://host.madison.com/w...994a-82fffd6297ec.html

They're all set to debut 1,200 pounds of a 15 year old Cheddar cheese they've been working on. It's only $40 a pound

They'll have it at the Dane County Farmers’ Market at Monona Terrace today. Does anyone in WI go to this market? I would love to try that cheese.

“I can tell if there’s any sort of off flavors, they’ll come out before five years,” he said. “By then, if something tastes great, it’s probably going to get better.”

The Hooks will sell 1,200 pounds of the 15-year cheddar in this first batch. Another batch will be available in three months; Hook declined to say how big that batch will be.

He also couldn’t say just how old he’d go with his cheeses.

“I’d like to hold a block or two to 20 years, but if everything sells out, I might not be able to,” he said. “I might hide one, though. Who knows?”
