Cheese Assortment Can Be Enjoyed 5 Kinds of Taste -Mintaru in Shintoku-
November 25th, 2015
Mintaru (ミンタル) is a cafe in Shintoku town located in the northwest of Obihiro city. Kyorogakusha (共働学舎), supporting for autistic people and mentally-handicapped people, runs it. At the Mintaru, the dairy products produced in Kyorogakusha can be eaten. There is Karinpani, the facility can be experienced the making of butter and cheese on a site, too. There is a garden around the buildings and it is very comfortable space. The goat is bred on the site, too.
I visited here around 15:00 on weekdays. The building is used woods abundantly and it has a warm atmosphere. The cafe has a high ceiling and spacious space. I came to eat a pizza, but it could be ordered from 11:00 to 14:30. Therefore I ordered today's cheese assortments. The price is JPY 850.
Approximately 10 minutes later, the today's cheese assortments were served. The cheese were 5 kinds, Sasayuki (笹ゆき), Petit Plezile (プチ・プレジール), Rela He Mintaru (レラ・ヘ・ミンタル), Gyunyuyama Cream Cheese (牛乳山クリームチーズ) and Coban (コバン).
Sasayuki is matured well with suppressing relatively unique strong mildew smell by the action of the striped bamboo's enzyme and nutrient composition. It has a peculiar flavor and seems to go well with a sake.
Petit Plezile means "Small Joy (小さな喜び)" in French language. This cheese is matured by yeast fungus not mildew. The good taste of the milk is fulled at small cheese. This cheese tastes rather sour and seems to go well with a wine.
Sasayuki and Petit Plezile are sold as package deal on Amazon.
Rela He Mintaru means "Amusement Place of Wind (風の遊び場)" in Ainu language. The sweetness of milk can be felt and it is mild. Everyone from adults to children can enjoy it and the cheese used from cuisine to snacks. It is usable in wide cooking uses. It does not have a peculiar flavor and I want to eat the cheese on a toast. It seems to go well with a wine.
Gyunyuyama Cream Cheese is a handmade cheese used separating cream from milk naturally. It is cream cheese of limited production only in the seasons for the many milk fat. It has a light taste and tastes a little sweet.
Coban is a mildew cheese with milky flavor and more smooth than Camembert cheese. It seems to go well with bread and does not have a peculiar flavor.
