The Houston Dairymaids is a unique venture from seasoned cheese professional, Lindsey Schechter. Part business and part exploration, the goal of the shop is to bring the work of Texas cheesemakers to Houston. Houston Dairmaids looks for cheeses naturally made by hand, and, when possible, from unpasteurized milk.
Through cheese tastings and work with area chefs, Houston Dairymaids aims to share cheesmaking experiences and expand the offerings of specialty foods in the city.
In addition to cheeses, the shop offers a wide array of specialty foods including Slow Dough bread, cured meats, olives, jams, honey, crackers, chocolate, butter, yogurt and more. And if you really want to learn, there are even regular cheese tastings.
Houston Dairymaids is open Tuesday through Sunday.
