Finally, Word is Out

This article was nice to wake up to.

And yes, that’s what I’ve been up to for the first quarter 2012. I think it’s a very Joy of Cheese style case. So far, the following affineurs are represented in the case: Beeler, Hostettler, Neal’s Yard Dairy, Madaio, Guffanti, D’Alos and the Cellars at Jasper Hill.
The Meat Case includes artisan products from Heritage (specifically the Armandino Batali salumi), Larchmont, Fra’Mani, Creminelli, La Quercia, and D’Espana (yes, a Pata Negra).
Don’t get me started on the beer: Evil Twin, Hof Ten Dormaal, and Schneider are just the beginning.
The next classes are March 29 at the 92nd St Y (ticket info here,, April 19 at 92Y ( and there will be an event in mid April probably at Kupersmith, a link to tickets will be posted here soon.
Gastronomie 491 will open on Wednesday. Come see us then!

Montgomery's Cheddar from Neal's Yard Dairy will be one of our mainstays.


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 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 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.
