Fat Toad Farms Caramel THE OG: This classic velvety, spoonable cajeta balances toffeed sweetness with the bright acidity of fresh goat’s milk. Pair this delectable cajeta with tart, fresh and soft-ripened cheeses, and contrast with creamy, robust blues. Drizzle over bright, raw fruit and spoon over yogurt or ice cream. Dunk savory, crunchy snacks and spread on sweet and salty crackers and shortbread.
Saint Nectaire AOP Raw cow’s milk cheese. Soft, supple texture with occasional tiny holes, giving the cheese a nice lightness. The flavor is earthy and fruity, with a sweet grassy aroma. Pair with a bold, beefy red wine. $19.99/lb
Tommette Brulee From master affineur Rodolphe Le Meunier. A classic Petit Basque aged for a few months, then burnt with an open flame. The result is beautiful- grassy and sweet yet with added caramely, smoky, nuttiness from the open flame. $31.00/lb
Rattlesnake Cheddar Wisconsin cheddar with Tequila and Habanero peppers. $19.99/lb
Wine of the Week
Roger Sabon Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve ’16 “Full-bodied and velvety, Sabon’s 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve is a step up from the les Olivets bottling and probably represents the best value in the 2016 lineup. Tasted blind, it showcases ripe dark plum and cola but also super ripe Grenache notes of apricot and delicate hints of garrigue, then it turns rich and chewy on the long finish. It’s 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah, matured in a mix of foudres and oak vats.” 95 pts Wine Advocate $55.00/btl
