This Week's Warehouse Tasting

Here's what we've got on our cheese plate this weekend: Two types of chevre from our adorable friend Amelia Sweethardt from Pure Luck Dairy (that's her on the left and sister Gitana on the right.) Her herd of Nubian and Alpine goats make the creamiest chevre and the June's Joy, named after Amelia's baby, is made with honey, smoked black pepper and thyme mixed throughout for an extra-special spread we love on pita chips.

We've also got samples of the Sand Creek Caerphilly, a buttery and mild raw milk cheese from Cameron, Texas modeled after the English cheese of the same name. It's the cheese we'll be using on grilled sandwiches today, all in the name of finding the perfect recipe for our stand which--drumroll, please--will be opening at the City Hall farmers market on February 9!

Just a heads up that there are about 20 tickets left to the February 3 cheese and beer tasting we're throwing at St. Arnold's so get them while you can! (Amelia will be there so you can say hi.) See you soon.
