Item Highlights

Bosc Pears

Bosc pears are medium to large in size and are oblong in shape with a rounded bottom that gradually tapers to an elongated neck and a slender green-brown stem. The thick skin is golden tan and is covered in rough, brown russeting with some mottling. The ivory to off-white flesh is firm, dense, and crisp with an intense honeyed aroma and has a central, soft core encasing a few small black-brown seeds. When ripe, Bosc pears are juicy, crunchy, and have a very sweet flavor with notes of woodsy spice. Due to their texture, they are ideal to use in baking, broiling, or poaching.

Sbrinz

Sbrinz AOP is a 100% natural cheese since it is made from first-class raw milk, rennet and salt without any additives. It takes a long time to mature the cheese, a minimum of 18 months before it can be savoured. The longer the cheese is matured, the more aromatic and spicy it tastes. It can be eaten in three different ways, depending on the cheese age. At 18 months, Sbrinz can be sliced or shaved into rolls. At 24 months or even longer, Sbrinz develops full flavour and is served as an aperitif or broken up into pieces (‘Möckli’) on a cheeseboard. Last but not least, grated Sbrinz with its spicy aroma is perfect for adding a finishing touch to many pastas, risotto or au gratin dishes. This versatile cheese is often used instead of Parmesan cheese in Swiss cuisine.

Fingerlakes Gold

A firm, sweet goat’s milk gouda from one of our favorite New York State dairies. Lively Run Goat Dairy has been in operation since 1983, and in that time the cheesemaking has been passed down from Suzanne Messmer to her son Pete. Finger lakes Gold is akin to the great goat’s milk goudas of the world (Midnight Moon, Black Betty, etc) and packs a unique and distinctive punch! The younger wheels have a firm creamy paste that is bright and nutty, and milky. Pairing Notes: malty ales, IPA’s, Belgian-style beers, lagers, bourbon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay
