It is such a beautiful day in New York City, so I decided to walk around the neighborhood. I meandered into Murray’s Cheese Shop on Bleecker Street not looking for anything in particular. I got some cottage cheese from Ben’s, and I also spotted small glass containers shaped like a milk bottle. They contained yogurt of various flavors made by White Cow Dairy in East Otto, New York. I picked up the cherry yogurt as I love cherries. When I got home, I tasted it. Wow. It’s made from whole milk and sour cherries, and it was creamy, rich, and flavorful. Absolutely delicious. So I read about White Cow Dairy online and was happy to find out more about it. The owner, Patrick Lango, is a fourth-generation dairy farmer who subscribes to the Slow Food movement. I want desperately to try one of his creme bulgares. Now, I do have to put in a word about Ben’s cottage cheese. I love cottage cheese, but what you often find in the grocery store is not cottage cheese to me. I usually buy Friendship because it’s made of the purest ingredients. However, one hasn’t tasted cottage cheese until they’ve had Ben’s. I can’t stress enough how I hate mass-produced food. It just tastes so bad and has really warped our sense of taste. And until you try foods made in a more natural way, you really don’t know what you’re missing. Anyway, I will definitely be back to Murray’s for some more White Cow.
