white bloomy yaaas

ORDER BEFORE 28 JANUARY 2020 TO BE CERTAIN OF SHIPPING ON 11 FEBRUARY (in time for Valentine's 14/2/'20).

More info on deadlines and shipping can be found here.

 

I had considered calling this one "Bussum's White", but I've been informed that makes me sound like I'm running a All Lives Matter rally, which, nope. So instead you get this generic name that informs you that this is really just a Brie like any other except without unneccessary speciesism. Animal rights matter ;)

Unopened, this yaaas will keep for about 7 days. It prefers to live at the bottom of your fridge. Freezing is not the best idea. We called it something other than "Elsa". The yaaas weighs about 150 grams.

The white smeerkees* mouldy yaaas is based on cashews. These are blended and fermented for about 5 weeks with authentic cultures and moulds. This way you get a wonderfully creamy, layered flavour throughout the entire yaaas. Delicious, but even better on a cheese board, on a sandwich or a cracker. Bonus points if you use it on a pasta. Or a pizza...

 

This yaaas has a bottom-of-your-fridge life of about 14 days. Yes, really, please do keep it in the salad drawer (if there's still place next to your grass) because that's the coolest place. Oh and please refrain from freezing it. It's named something other than Elsa for a reason. The yaaas weighs about 140 grams.

*We'll spare you the Google search here. The word smeerkees is a pun on the Dutch name for spreadable cheese - smeerkaas. It works because a smeerkees is a filthy person in the sense that this cutie is filthy. Or a child covered in ice cream is. Not in whatever way Google is trying to tell you this yaaas is a pervert, you feel me?

Our personal favourite. The white smeerkees is delicious on its own, but then it's turned into a triple garlic yaaas and what you get is a yaaas that's four times as good. See, I can do maths!

 

The triple garlic is a mix of 3 flavour bombs: home-fermented black garlic; garlic fermented in miso (miso-zuke); and smoked garlic.

 

This yaaas has a bottom-of-your-fridge life of about 14 days. Being frozen is better in theory than it is in reality, so please just keep it in the salad drawer instead. It weighs about 140 grams.

We didn't even want to sell these, but here we are. The pesto is made from homegrown organic wild garlic and basil. The basil does not come from our own garden, because it was a terrible year for it and what we did have, we ate ourselves.

 

Flore is a good Hufflepuff-Ravenclaw hybrid so she feels compelled to add a nice anecdote to this. In Dutch we call the allium ursinum "daslook" because it resembles garlic in the same way that chives resemble onions, and badgers like to live under these plants. So uhm, buy a yaaas, save a badger? You never know, maybe we'll succeed in luring them to Eemnes...


This particular variety can be kept at the bottom of your fridge for about 7 days. Please don't freeze it, though. You know the old saying - every time you freeze a yaaas, a badger dies. It's true. 

spreadable yaaas

The limitist of editions, because I only have few left from the Christmas packages. The fermented smeerkees (spreadable yaaas) based on cashews, flavoured with calvados (apple brandy), cranberries and orange zest. Contains alcohol.

This is a posh one, ok. It is quite spoiled and that makes it extra difficult to keep up with your yaaas-buying-marathon, but it will hopefully be back by February.

 

It is based on fermented almonds. It also contains garlic and fine herbs. We assume you're familiar with that taste pallet?

N.B .: This yaaas (and the other spreadings from the Christmas package) tend continue fermenting a little. So please don't be alarmed if it smells a bit sour! Bring along your friends Salty and Sweetie and ask them to balance it out a bit. And, yes, technically, we could fix this. However, that would ruin all the good bacteria that we've created and it will make your belly cry, so we'd rather not.

Hard yaaas

Don't you just love a vicious old queen? A salty, literally ancient queen who crumbles at the touch in the very best way. Now if only I could get myself to name it after Sir Ian McKellen, then we'd be as golden as the yaaas itself. I may have been slightly binging Vicious all winter. Hey, I studied English. May as well do something with it 🤷

 

This one will only get better with age. The one you'll get will be a few months old (again, stop marathoning the yaaas, please!). The old batch was over a year old and even more amazing.

 

So as long as you keep it closed and refrigerated (not frozen), you can keep it for ages. Or can you? *eyebrow waggle*.

Looooveeee ooff mmmyyyy liiiffffeeeeee~. Seriously though I have been dying to share this one again. A few years ago I developed a version of this fondue for a restaurant where it's been the most popular dish on the menu from day 1. During the first year of Vegan Flore I've improved the recipe on a few fronts, and now I can finally put it up for sale.

The fondue is based on the white bloomy rind yaaas/white bloomy smeerkees. Seeing as that one is still fermenting, the fondue will also be ready to be shipped from the 22nd of January.
