2006, 2007, 2012 AMERICAN CHEESE SOCIETY WINNER. The Detroit Street Brick draws its name from the famed brick street in front of Zingerman’s Delicatessen. This goat cheese is aged from two to five weeks and is generously studded with fresh cracked green peppercorns and a soft velvet coating of penicillium mold. Beginning as a dense, slightly crumbly cheese with a bright lemony tang, the Detroit Street Brick develops a savory and spicy quality over time that gives the cheese an amazing earthiness and a dark ivory color with flecks of pepper throughout.
The Detroit Street Brick can be served sliced thinly and briefly warmed under a broiler with a drizzling of olive oil. It is also a great change of pace when melted on a hamburger. It also pairs exceptionally well with flintier white wines, such as Sancerre.
