This Week's Tasting Plate: A Tale of Hope Edition
Not only is the Sarvecchio Parmesan a delicious cheese--the best domestic parmesan we've tasted--it has a mood-lifting back story. You see, it was a group of laid-off Kraft employees that decided to start a cheese-making co-op in Wisconsin after they lost their jobs. Their great work produced a crumbly yet firm cheese with a nuanced flavor that has since collected numerous awards.
Because this is America, Sarvecchio was eventually purchased by a larger cheese company but the product remains as good as ever. Also remaining the same are our store hours--10am-6pm Tuesday through Friday and 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday. This week we'll also have Pure Luck's St. Maure, Little Boy Blue and the smoked Marieke Gouda. Come on by and make your cheese dreams come true. As the folks at Sarvecchio have proven, it is possible.
