Liptauer, Zingerman's

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 cheesemakers carefully crafs a variety of both cow and goat milk cheeses.

An old standby spreadable cheese snack in bars across Hungary, Liptauer is made by blending fresh cream cheese with two types of paprika, garlic, sea salt capers, toasted caraway and a touch of anchovy paste. The result is a beautiful melding of flavors with a kick of hot paprika spice. This cheese is fantastic with a slice of rye or pumpernickel and a robust ale.
