Sharon Tomaselli and Bob Sweitzer of Cooperstown Cheese Company are former paper makers turned cheese makers. Their love of cheese led them to learn all they could about both the science and the art of making cheese and to create some truly unique cheeses. At the 2013 American Cheese Society’s annual competition in Austin, their Jersey Girl cheese received high honors. Along with their Toma Celena cheese, Jersey Girl was selected to be on the menu at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration luncheon!
Toma Celena is a nutty and rich Italian table cheese that is our own creation. Its flavor is complex, hinting of toasted grains, apples and caramelized milk. It is named after the first person to sample it, love it, and buy the first wheel.
