Cheese: A Few Of My Favorite Things


Brent Delman (The Cheese Guy) has, for years brought us some of the finest cheeses in the kosher world. Over a month ago I picked three of them I had not seen before…

Three Cheeses

…and cholov Yisroel too!

The creamery that makes the Mild Cheddar has thoroughly mastered the art of cheddaring. Aged under 6 months, the distinctive Cheddar taste is very much present but it is not that strong that it would overpower anything it’s mixed with, rather it will nicely enhance it with a slight hint of butter. I used it in a salad with kale, onion, cherry tomatoes, and the combination was delicious!

The Gruyere Style Vermont Mountain Cheese made a truly great French, French Onion Soup. Scrumptious! It’s got a unique nuttiness and earthiness.

Pepper Jack was never one of my favorites… until now! It was spicy and yet creamy, full of flavor, in spite of the spiciness.

As usual, The Cheese Guy‘s selection of cheeses does not disappoint, that leaves me with no choice but to try their selections of pasta, crackers, jam, chutney, conserves and specifically that Heirloom Apple and Vermont Maple Syrup Butter… Just writing it makes my mouth water!

Les Gourmandises de France


Tuesday afternoon, as I passed by a French bakery, Les Gourmandises de France, in Manhattan (1437 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10021 – Tel: 212.988.1414), I decided to give it a try. In a small space with walls covered with black and white photos of Paris, and showcases filled with delicacies that reminded me of my visits to the famed Boulangerie Murciano in Paris’ Les Marais quarter, I found…

Strawberry Tart, Lemon Merengue, and so much more…

They also offer croissants, coffee, sandwiches, baked salmon. and a plethora of Shabbat dishes….

Baked Salmon

While I’m not into fish, I must confess that Baked Salmon was good! Early this morning I went back to Manhattan to pick up their challahs

Gourmandises-10b

Seeded and no seeds challahs

Quite a number of locals were there to pick up their challahs and Shabbos dishes, considering I had some of my grandkids from Providence over for Shabbos, I ended up getting one seeded and two without seeds. They looked good and judging by the way some of their regular customers praised them I have no doubt they will be. All their baked products are amazingly parve, but you’d never suspect it from the taste!

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
