Just arrived back from New York City and our intensive Cheese Boot Camp (and just one Broadway show). We spent three days in class and tried over 60 cheeses…plus spent time making cheese plates, seeing cheese caves, and pairing cheeses with wine, cider, and beer. Our class instructor told us that we each ate four pounds (yes, not ounces) of cheese each. We do feel a bit cheesy – but aren’t sick of tasting good stinky cheeses yet.
We tried a few new (new to the world, not only to us) cheeses that we’ll be bringing to you here at Bizzi’s hopefully by the weekend. Hopefully we won’t bore you to death and be cheese goobers, but you may have to stop us – our feelings won’t be hurt.
Also we’ve been trying new twists on our ciabatta bread and baguettes. Back to our food tastings…fresh bread out of the oven with fresh cream cheese & homemade orange marmalade. Must be accompanied with a fresh cup of coffee. With cream.
Look for us to be putting on a cheese class in September on a Saturday afternoon…after the weather breaks a bit.
