Fromage of the Day, 09.17.12: Meredith Dairy Marinated Cheese

Fromage of the Day, 09.17.12: Meredith Dairy Marinated Cheese (I think that’s the official name for it; at Gastronomie 491 we call it Aussie Magic).  Tangy, sweet and herbal, this marinated feta style cheese is made not far from Melbourne Australia.  It pairs well with a big crusty piece o’ bread and perhaps the following beverages, a Brooklyn Local 1, a Mosel Riesling, a Farnum Hill Dry Cider or a Michter’s Rye.  If it was a Wayne Shorter tune during his time with Blakey, it would be “The Chess Players,”  tangy and sweet, no?  The Joy of Cheese Autumn Events begin October 2nd at Gastronomie 491 with the Face Offs.  Details 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 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.
