Never underestimate a Greek Cheese!

February 12, 2014

June 11, 2013

At the recent festival I was introduced to the great team from Five Brothers Artisan Cheese who make cheese out in St. John’s, Newfoundland. They are known throughout St. John’s local food scene, so it’s time for them to get some exposure on a national scale. I enjoyed some of their queso fresco, a perfect summertime cheese.
