Fromage of the Day, 01.24.22: Winnimere

Sumptuous, decadent and savory, this seasonal wonder of the world is from the Jasper Hill Farms in Vermont. It’s the Marvin Gaye to the Tami Terrell of your favorite Rhone Valley red, Imperial Stout, or peated Scotch. If it was a jazz singer, it would be Joe Williams, incredibly suave.

We’re not carrying Winnimere this season at 67Gourmet, but I aspire to next season.

Fromage of the Day, 01.22.22: Rogue River Blue

Dense, earthy and fruity, this limited edition blue is one of the very best American cheeses, if not one of the world’s best cheeses, and it’s made in Oregon. This fromage is wrapped in pear spirits soaked Syrah grape leaves. It’s the Charlie Parker to the Dizzy Gillespie of your favorite Vouvray, a Belgian Abbey Ale, or a Margarita. If it was a Miles Davis classic, it would be On the Corner, in your face and your face is better for it.

Fromage of the Day, 01.21.22: Bayley Hazen Blue

Earthy, dense and buttery, this blue is from Vermont. It’s the Hardy to the Laurel of your favorite Reisling, Port or Chenin Blanc, it’s also a good time with a pastry stout, or an especially sweet cocktail. If it was an Ornette Atlantic, it would be This is Our Music, spiky and savory.

Bayley Hazen is NOT carried at 67Gourmet, but we carry lots of other great cheeses.

Fromage of the Day, 01.20.22: Kunik

Lush, potently rich, and herbal, this powerful delight is from upstate NY. It’s the Ginger to the Fred of any sparkling wine (even The Chook), your favorite farmhouse ale, or a small batch bourbon. If it was a popular singer, it would be Adele, enveloping and appealing.

Kunik is one of the cheeses that will make its 67Gourmet debut this weekend.

Fromage of the Day, 01.19.22: Delice de Bourgogne

Rich, sumptuous and bright, this popular triple cream is from France. It’s the Tony Bennett to the Lady Gaga or any sparkling wine, a Citra hopped hazy IPA or a good Manhattan. If it was a contemporary jazz singer, it would be Gregory Porter, approachable and smooth.

Delice de Bourgogne is slated to be one of the highlights of weekend 2 at 67Gourmet, the new cheese shop in Manhattan.

Fromage of the Day, 01.18.22: Beehive Promontory Cheddar

Creamy in mouthfeel and sharp and fruity in the finish, this cheese is from Utah. It’s the Eddie Kendricks to the Diana Ross of a Rhone Valley Red, a peaty Scotch or a Brown Ale. If it was a Don Byron recording, it would be Music for Six Musicians, biting and pleasing.

Yeah, the Beehive is one of the opening day cheeses at 67Gourmet, and Rhone Valley Reds are on special this weekend at 67Wine.

Butterscotch, caramel and sea salt are the dominant overtones of this Aged Gouda from Holland. It’s a Mary J to the Method Man of a Jura Chardonnay, a West Coast IPA or a Mezcal. If it was a Steven Soderbergh film, it would be Out of Sight, sweet and salty.
