Join us this Saturday (October 29th) for samples of Solo Di Bruna, a variety of Parmigiano-Reggiano made exclusively from brown cow’s milk. This odd practice dates to the Middle Ages, where it was noted that the milk of brown cows, or “Bruna”, made a cheese that was exceptionally creamy and flavorful. Samples will be available from 11 AM to 2 PM.
See you Saturday!

Five new cheeses, including three goat cheeses and a goat cheese blend, from Nordic Creamery! Click for an expanded image.
Capriko is an award-winning, semi-hard cheese made from a blend of fresh goat and cow milks. This handcrafting blending of milks, showcases the cheesemaker’s art and delivers a cheese that is firm, yet has a creamy mouth feel and a sweet, nutty flavor, followed by a pleasant tanginess.
Grumpy Goat is bold, semi-hard, but still creamy, goat cheese, cellar-aged over 1 year for an audacious robust flavor. Aging brings out the full flavor of the goat milk and adds a sharpness that will delight cheese lovers.
