Fromage of the Day, 01.13.22: La Tur

Complex, light and creamy, this northern Italian delight is made from a combination of cow, goat and sheep’s milk. It pairs well with your favorite Nebbiolo, Glenlivet, or a barrel aged sour. If it was a phase of David Bowie’s career, it would be the Berlin Trilogy (Low, Heroes and Lodger), approachable but deep.

La Tur is one of the cheeses in the debut inventory at 67Gourmet, a new cheese and charcuterie outlet that is opening this week in the Lincoln Square area of New York City.


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.

    I saw that I’m only one, of what I’m sure are many, grateful for the return of Fromage of the Day! I’m wishing I had access to some of that Purple Haze. (I’d probably try anything you characterized by referencing Bill Frisell…). I expect this’ll prove to be a rewarding gig, but keep me posted on your music articles that you think I’d enjoy.
    Congrat’s !!
    ps. RIP Khan Jamal.
