Liederkranz cheese returns – and St. Louis has it

June 23rd 12:06pm, 2010

062310_Wine&CheeseLiederkranz, a famed American cheese out of production since 1985, has just returned to the market in limited quantities, and The Wine and Cheese Place plans to stock it.

“We are expecting Liederkranz on Thursday, keeping our fingers crossed,” Paul Hayden, manager at the Clayton shop, notified us by e-mail today. “I cannot wait to taste it myself. I have been at The Wine and Cheese Place for 23 years, and production of Liederkranz stopped two years before I started.”

Earlier this year, DCI Cheese Co. of Richfield, Wisc., began to reintroduce Liederkranz to the market in specialty retailers across the Midwest. Hayden described it as “an American re-creation of Limburger cheese, made subtly different by the use of a different bacterial culture for ripening – cow’s-milk cheese, with an edible pale yellow-orange tan crust and a semisoft, pale interior with a mildly pungent flavor and distinct aroma”
