Seattle, I salute you!

The past week has been crazy busy, thank you Seattle cheese lovers!
I've been selling out of many favorites such as Kurtwood Farms Dinah, the lovely Camembert-style round that is taking the Pacific Northwest by storm.

Also in demand lately; Gioia Burrata, authentic Italian family-made Burrata from L.A. It is affordable, delicious, you'd never know it wasn't coming from across the giant pond as the family moved their entire production from Italy to California years ago and continue to make a stellar product.

New in the case (and almost sold out!); Ascnootney Mountain from Cobb Hill (aged by Jasper Hills in Vermont), this cheese is one I'm saying should have a 12 step program named after it. Also from Jasper Hill, a new favorite of mine, Oma from the Von Trapp Farmstead Creamery, this cheese is way up on my list of amazing washed rind domestic cheeses. Kudos to the Von Trapp folks, and to Jasper Hills for this amazing cheese!

In other news, last Friday, May 21st, marked the one month anniversary/birthday of the Calf & Kid! Thanks SO much to everyone who has made it into the shop, I can't believe that I already have "regulars", and to boot there are people waltzing in every day figuring out that we're open. I am just over the moon as a new cheesemongress :)

  1. Greetings Cheese Vixen! I stopped by Rain Shadow meats today and was pleasantly surprised to see your awesome cheese shop as well. I work just down the hill off Yale so hope to swing through for some awesome cheese in the very near future.

    I'm working with to help spread the word about Jubilee Farm in Carnation and would love to learn more about what you are doing some time as another local food provider. I'll be out of town next week but perhaps I can swing through and buy you a coffee in the next few weeks.
