Lincoln Log

It almost seemed destiny that Zingerman's -- that purveyor of fine foodstuffs, that stacker of thick sandwiches, that favorite of Go Blue! college kids and visiting parents -- should turn their highly-flavored fingers to making cheese. Using fresh organic milk from Southeastern Michigan, Zingerman's award-winning cheesemaker, John Loomis, carefully crafts a variety of both cow and goat milk cheeses.

Born from a desire to try their hand at imitating French Boucheron, Zingerman's produced Lincoln Log, a twelve-inch-long sumptuous cylinder of goat cheese. Aged for two weeks, Lincoln Log is slightly younger than the Aged Chelsea with a fresh tanginess and white mushroom flavor.
