A Shimaenaga bird's petite body is fluffy and white like snow, allowing it to blend into the snow-covered landscape during long winters. The Shimaenaga cheese resembles its namesake, poised in its own little enclosure, looking soft and snowy.
While young, the cheese's flavors are sour with a light saltiness, recommended with jams and preserves. As it ages, Shimaenaga becomes more and more creamy, and the mouthfeel smooths out. At this point, a cracker is the best accessory.
Also recommended with Champagne.
