Melinda Mae is hand-crafted by cheesemaker Brian Civitello at Mystic Cheese, a small creamery in Groton, Connecticut. Mystic Cheese sources their high-quality milk from a local farm and produces a small line of delicious cheeses. Melinda Mae is a soft-ripened cheese with a beautiful edible snowy white rind. It is soft and pillowy with a smooth, gooey paste. Melinda Mae tastes like white button mushrooms, sour cream, and cultured butter, and it finishes with a bright, refreshing tang. Brian's inspiration is the robiolas of Northern Italy.
