The One and Only Humboldt Fog

Award winning artisanal cheese



Janice Kleinschmidt

There are many bries, goudas, and cheddars. But there’s only one Humboldt Fog. Among the cognoscenti, this elegant goat’s milk cheese commands attention. And there’s but one maker: Cypress Grove Chevre of Arcata, which has won numerous awards for its artisanal cheeses (Humboldt Fog has won the World Cheese Awards four times, including the past three years in a row).

Humboldt Fog can be recognized through its creamy texture and a stripe of organic vegetable ash that brings layer cake to mind. A pound will run you $20, or you can try it at Café Chocolat in Palm Springs just as Cypress Grove recommends: paired with honeycomb and fresh pear.
