it's not your birthday, it's the birthday of the month that you joined woot, in your case that would be next July, so make sure you are signed up to receive news in your account info.

Correct. "(unless you’ve unchecked your newsletter notification box under the “your account” tab up there, in which case you won’t be hearing from us). "

If you don't have the check mark by the Newsletter box under the "Your Account" page, per the original post you can:

please email bdaycoupon@woot.com.



Good luck!

What cheese could one compare this to? Is it nutty, pungent etc. Does it melt well, or accompany certain dishes/meats?

As for the price, it's not really that high, assuming this is a nice cheese. I've paid around 18 bucks for a nice parmigiano reggiano and I've never had a better parmesan since. Supermarket parmesan is a joke. Pre grated is an insult. Sadly there aren't any italian delis around me anymore...

LaVikinga wrote:Yeah, I was thinking that as I wrote it. We picked up some dry cured bacon at a Farmers' Market when we came thru VA this fall. The green on the rind gives me pause every time I see it. By the way, which is a better steak? A dry aged or a wet aged?

Food.Woot might be fun

Unfortunately, my natural cheapness and laziness have prevented me from doing extensive studies of this issue. I have always heard that dry-aged is better, and that wet-aged is just a cheaper shortcut. Dry-aging, I am led to understand, does two things. First, it lets the natural enzymes in the beef “pre-digest” the muscle fibers to soften and flavor them. (This is somehow different from letting beef rot—I guess the microbes are different.) Second, it reduces the moisture level of the meat, thereby intensifying the flavor. The downside for meat-packers is that it causes the meat to lose weight through dehydration as well as through the required trimming (the outside gets pretty brown and ugly). Wet aging, on the other hand, only has the first effect. Although it tenderizes the meat, without the drying effect, it does not concentrate the flavors. It is favored by meat-packers over dry-aging because it is faster, the meat does not lose weight through dehydration and does not need to be trimmed.

Perhaps during the second half of some week, Woot would let us do a nice lateral tasting with some nice, aged beef? One of the beauties of Woot is that it really does address the whole “laziness” thing.

I have driven past the dairy many many times it is very modern and awe inspiring to any dairy industry person.

We do have a website:

Enjoy



I read your comments on this site (woot) on how to store it in the fridge: plastic wrap instead of ziplock so that it can breathe --- In your website it says to rub it with oil and store it in a covered food storage container using a small amount of paper towel to control humidity -- is that method OUTSIDE a fridge or on a fridge? Can you elaborate on the method? (do you cover the cheese or the container with the paper or is the paper just added into container?
By the way I'm assuming olive oil would work fine.

[PS: Sounds like a wonderful story (finding a way to get the next generation and expand the dairy into a cheese farmstead, the family run business itself, cows, milk, farm setting and the whole thing - I ordered some of the cheese and I can't wait to try it]

I may be late, but I wanted to share my own experiences with the Serenita, because it is sold at a finer grocery store in my area, and that's why I was in for one earlier during the woot.

To me, Serenita has the flavor of mellow sea salt. Combine this with the natural textural qualities of an aged (but not very aged) cheese, and you get an idea of how it tastes and eats. It is, in fact, very difficult to not finish a piece in one sitting, and the elemental-ness of the flavor makes me want to eat and drink it with all kinds of things. I have been forced to content myself with lower-priced odds and ends of Serenita, so the ability to purchase a pound along with a pound of one of its "sisters" is very attractive to me.

I look forward to forcing everyone to eat a slice at Thanksgiving - even the lactose intolerant!

It's a new dawn, it's a new day... and I'm feelin' woot.

Regularly $199.99. I bought the same one on sale several months ago for $139. Works great. Not sure if every Target store has the same clearance items, but it would be well worth your time to check. Thanks for the info, Jopo! Another friend who works at Target called me at 9:26 this morning to tell me about the cooler too. Mixed emotions about that, including: 1) I'm not a morning person, why the frak are you calling me so (relatively) early on a Saturday? 2) What a good friend to let me know about a deal! 3) Does everyone see a wine-related product on sale and think "hey... that lush Eric would dig this"?

Late Labrat here with Serenita. I was out of town and picked it up today. After days of no AC in the very cool midwest, the cheese is still ready to go!

This is a an exceptional cheese. Hard, a bit oily after it's travels, it has a nutty flavor that would be superb with syrupy Germans, sauternes or ports and some apples, pears, and the like. A but too soft to grate, I'd love to chill this down and try to anyway!

Thank you for the opportunity to try this truly otstanding cheese!
