Menu for the Week of August 20, 2012 — Join Us At The Southern Artisan Cheese Festival!

If you’re like us, at some point during this beautiful weekend, you thought to yourself, “Self, I sure do wish there was a festival in the Southeast where I could sample 75+ handcrafted cheeses and meet the wonderful artisans who make them.”   And then you thought, “We’ve got to get that trip to Nashville on the books!”  Boy are you in luck…

Join us on October 6th in Nashville, Tennessee for the second annual Southern Artisan Cheese Festival, where we are honored to be one of the few non-cheese-makers to be setting up a booth to sample and sell.  It should be a great weekend with lots of music, great fun, and amazing food.  This once a year event brings together over 20 artisanal cheesemakers from six states around the Southeast and  producers crafting cured meats, jams, pickles, breads, crackers, chocolate, and more.  In fact, inspired by the event, we’ve actually brought in several new cheeses to the retail shop, so definitely check out that portion of the menu below.

The festival did sell out last year, so if you’re thinking about going, don’t delay!  For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit their website at  It sure would be great to have a little hometown support and see some familiar faces in the crowd!

And speaking of selling out, the 7 p.m. seating for the August 31 CIVIC is almost sold out (about 10 spots left), but there are plenty of spots left in the 9:30 seating.  Click here for more details and to reserve your spot!  We promise the perfect kick-off to your Labor Day weekend!
