Fromage of the Day, 12.29.10: Grand Old Man.
Buttery, dense and sweet, this sheep’s milk cheese is from Italy. It pairs well with your favorite BIG Italian red wine, an Ommegang Hennepin, or a biting, or a good Chablis. If it was a jazz singer, it would be Mark Murphy, versatile and appealing. The Joy of Cheese annual celebration of the blues begins with seven blue cheeses and seven beers to match, January 4 at d.b.a Bklyn. Details here, https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/142602
