Pure Luck should consider changing its name to Pure Hard Work — which is responsible for the Dripping Springs goat dairy’s many national awards for its cheeses. Most recently, Pure Luck’s Basket-Molded Chèvre was listed in Food & Wine’s November issue as a component in “the Great American Cheese Plate.” A-B likes the Red Pepper version, which took a blue ribbon at this year’s American Cheese Society Competition. The camembert-like Del Cielo also took first place in its category, and the Hopelessly Bleu, which took first last year, tied for third.

Pure Luck was founded in the mid-’80s by the late Sara Bolton and her husband Denny as a family-run organic farm. These days, Sara’s daughter Amelia Sweethardt and husband Ben oversee the 100-goat-strong Grade A dairy.

Central Market carries Pure Luck and plans to stock up this Friday, when Amelia conducts a demo from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. as part of the store’s Holiday Entertaining Event (the event also runs Saturday and Sunday). Sweethardt says they’ll probably showcase their feta, the plain chèvre featured in Food & Wine, and that award-winning Hopelessly Bleu.
