Detroit Street Brick

It almost seemed destiny that Zingerman's -- purveyor of fine foodstuffs, stacker of thick sandwiches, favorite of Go Blue! college kids and visiting parents -- should turn their seasoned hands to making cheese. Using fresh organic milk from Southeastern Michigan, Zingerman's award-winning cheesemakers carefully craft a variety of both cow and goats' milk cheeses.

Named for the address of Zingerman's Deli and shaped to look like the square cobblestones that pave the Ann Arbor neighborhood, Detroit St. Brick is a dense, young goat cheese. Slice into the bloomy brick and discover the cracked green peppercorns buried in the creamy paste that give this tangy cheese a fresh hit of spice.
