We’ve gotten in some new fabulous cheeses. Here’s a quote from Max McCalman’s book “Mastering Cheese”:
“If they were putting on the blindfold and I was down to my last cheese, it might have to be Sbrinz. For me, there is no match for a thin shaving of this ancient delight-a serious rival of genuine Parmigiano-Reggiano for the best old cheese in the universe. Sbrinz is strong yet very balanced, dryish yet mouthwatering.”
And yes, we’ve got wine to go with it. Come-n-get it!

We’re not letting a few clouds get us down. Today we’re sampling our best olive oils along with a wonderful 6-month manchego and some local artisan salami. We’ve also got some Italian taralle to try (pretzels made with olive oil & white wine!) From 12:30-3:00 we’ll have live jazz piano, and Italian wines for sampling. Come down for a sip, a sandwich & a song.
