Special Cheese Event – jumi
September 28 & 29 The Gourmet Shop is proud to host Sam Frank from jumi! Sam will be doing in-store raclette demonstrations (from 11ish-2ish) and talking about some of jumi’s amazing cheeses. All of their products are produced by four family run dairies in the Emmental region of Switzerland. The cows of jumi’s dairies all feed on fresh grass and hay and the farmers start and end the process by hand. Join us in sampling these hand-selected swiss beauties and see the raclette melter in action!
Ashbrook An American take on Morbier. Roasted-peanut aroma and a dreamy, creamy texture. It is a semi-soft washed rind raw cow milk cheese that is aged for approximately three months. A mild funkiness on the rind gives way to a paste that is milky, lactic and sweet. $31.50/lb
Raclette Produced from raw milk in the valleys behind Bern, Switzerland following the oldest methods of cheesemaking. It is a classic, yet a very special version. A must have for melting. $26.00/lb
Casatica di Bufala Soft, bloomy, stracchino-style buffalo’s milk. Delicately milky, rich, creamy and sweet…a beautiful pillow of marshmallowy delight! Pair with the bubbles for a match made in heaven. $25.99/lb
All Cigars 25% Off!
Stock up for enjoying Fall weather, tailgaiting, cool evenings. Choose from Macanudo, Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, C.A.O., Rocky Patel, Arturo Fuente, Cohiba, Diamond Crown and more!!
Wine of the Week
Jonata Todos Red ’12
“The 2012 Todos, Jonata’s Syrah-based blend, is once again delicious. A touch of appassimento gives the 2012 an extra kick of flavor and texture intensity. Sweet cherry, raspberry jam, spice, mint and licorice notes abound in this racy, bold red. Todos is Jonata’s least expensive red wine, but it competes quite favorable with the higher-end bottlings. The 2012 was aged mostly in larger-format French oak barrels, with 40% new wood.”
