Carmelita is certified good food

Looking Glass Creamery slates Carmelita as a sauce. True, it’s good on apples, bread, ice cream, but it’s best, unaccompanied, with a spoon.

Some of the nation’s top confection connoisseurs agree. On Jan. 18, Carmelita won a Good Food Award at a San Francisco ceremony hosted by Alice Waters of Chez Pannise and delicious cookbook fame. The golden, goat-milk caramel was among 11 winners in the confections category. The contest is nationwide in scope.

In short, Carmelita is a caramel sauce made from goat’s milk. The deep, tangy flavor of the milk makes it a complex and thought-provoking treat. Looking Glass Creamery makes three flavors of Carmelita — traditional, coffee and bourbon-vanilla — but the company’s focus is goat cheese. Owners Jennifer and Andy Perkins are founding members of the WNC Cheese Trail, a group that promotes tourism to WNC’s cheese-making sites.
