Cheese Buyer: Robin Byrne
This Months Featured Cheese is Manchego
Who doesn't like to support local farmers? And when they're serving up cheese as good as this, it's even more of a pleasure. We carry cheeses made in Rockland, Lamoine, New Gloucester, Westbrook, and Whitefield.
No, we don't mean "American cheese", we're talking about the best artisan cheeses from across the county! From New York State, all across Vermont, and Wisconsin.
We all know that France is the big cheese when it comes to, well, cheese. But we've also got cheese from other places, such as England, Spain, Denmark, and Greece!
Wonderful, complex flavors that are great on their own, pared with wine, fruit, and cracker, and in your favorite recipes. Regiano, parmesan, cheddar, blue...so much to choose from.
Soft cheeses open a whole world of possibilities, like spreads, tarts, and cheesecake! From ricotta to cream cheese, we've got it all!
Feta and Goat Cheese
You don't have to be limited to cheeses made from cow milk. We have lots of delicious goat cheeses, plain, marinated, or herbed. And if you enjoy the salty taste of feta, we've got you covered there too!
Yes, well all love a good cheese board, but there are also a lot of things that you can pair with with that cheese. We carry several varieties of olives, roasted tomatoes, and roasted red peppers in our cheese case.
WHAT WILL THE Cheese Department BE LIKE IN THE NEW STORE?
If you're a cheese lover, which we assume you are if you're reading this, you know that the more cheese the better. As with everything in our current location, we are heavily restricted by space for showing off our cheese. There will be a much bigger cheese case in the new store, allowing for an expanded cheese selection. There is even a possibility that you could see full cheese wheels for sale.
