Review of Houston Dairymaids by TexasRealFood
Houston Dairymaids is a ten-year-old venture from seasoned cheese professional, “Lindsey Schechter.” Part business and part exploration, the goal of Houstin Dairymaids is to meet “artisan Texas cheesemakers,” learn about their craft, and bring the best of their products to Houston. They have a Heights shop open to the public full-time, offering a “free tasting of six cheeses.” The free cheese sample selection covers a range of styles, milks, and origins and acts as an introduction to their “collection of over 150 cheeses.” Houston Dairymaids feature mostly American-made cheeses, and highlight Texas cheeses. To complement the cheeses, they also carry fresh bread from Slow Dough Bakery, honey, olives, American-made salami and other cheese accompaniments. They also have a great selection of cheese-friendly wines and beer available.
