Roomano – the ultimate cheese candy

August 28, 2013

Several years ago I fell in love with this tasty treat, and recently returned to Murray’s Cheese shop in NYC for another bite! This delectable treat is aged several years, and has the crunchy crystal bits I love as well as intense sweet/savoury notes. As it is so aged, it travels really well, another bonus for me! So far it has not proven the easiest to find, so when you see it, grab it!

June 11, 2013

The Great Canadian Cheese Festival provides a great opportunity to introduce Canada’s cheesemakers to the public at large. 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.

This northern Italian, name protected cheese is tangy and mild when young, then develops into a full flavoured, beefy wood-mushroomy extravaganza with age. Welcomed on my cheese plate at any stage!
