Wackym’s Kitchen Cornmeal Rosemary Shortbread They combine touches of home-grown rosemary with stone-ground cornmeal to create a slightly sweet buttery cookie. This understated but delicious twist on a traditional shortbread is great when paired with strong cheeses such as a Stilton, fruit, wine, afternoon tea, or simply enjoyed one cookie at a time.
Grand Mogol Fans of Delice de Bourgogne and Brillat Savarin take note! This luscious pasteurized cows’ milk triple crème from France’s Loire valley is rich with a bloomy rind and an artful cylindrical shape. Would be right at home with some bubbles!
Hafod Cheddar A Neals Yard Dairy selection. Cheddar with a supple, golden paste and the occasional blue vein. The flavors are rich, layered, and generally less acidic than other cheddars. A true artisanal gem from Rob Howard at the Hollden Farm Dairy. $25.00/lb
Monte Enebro A soft-ripened goat cheese handmade exclusively by cheese maker Rafael Baez in Avila, Spain. Semi-soft, white, somewhat chalky and brittle when young. Runny and transluscent with age. Creamy, lemony, and robust. $31.00/lb
Wine of the Week
Vina Cobos Bramare Malbec ’13
“Bright ruby-red. Musky aromas of black- and redcurrant, coffee and mocha. Supple, plush and seamless, but with harmonious acidity giving shape to the flavors of currant, mocha and sweet oak. A sexy touch of chocolate adds to the impression of ripeness. Finishes broad and long, with the energy and grip to age. But this tasty Malbec won’t hurt your teeth if you open it early.”
