Fromage of the Day, 02.08.12: Cabricharme

Fromage of the Day, 02.08.12: Cabricharme.  Buttery, smooth and sweet, this washed rind goat’s milk is from Belgium.  It’s the step between easygoing creamy goat cheeses like Bocconcini Di Capra and robust ones like Holzeme Geiss.   Cabricharme pairs nicely with your favorite Gavi di Gavi, a Valeir Extra, a High West Rye, or an Isastegi Cider.  If it was a still active veteran saxophonist, it would be Houston Person, cool and soulful.  The Joy of Cheese, um, Late Winter Events will be announced soon.

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.

    I first encountered Cabricharme while working at The Bedford Cheese Shop in Brooklyn. I will carry most of the cheeses touted in this blog at my gig, which is a soon to open store on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
