Menu for the Week of March 23, 2015 — Flowers are Blooming and So Is The Cheese!

Menu for the Week of March 23, 2015 — Flowers are Blooming and So Is The Cheese!

So here we are a few days into Spring 2015. What does that mean? Well around the house of our cheesemonger Scott, it’s an all too brief blooming of the big cherry tree, tulips, and day lilies; hydrangeas and roses starting to leaf out; and of course unending videos of this season’s calves, kids and lambs from our favorite cheesemakers!

Of course this also means that all of the fresh spring cheeses will be making their way into the shop. Keep your eyes posted to our FB page, web page or just ask when you’re in the shop to find out what’s coming and when.

Springtime also means the opening of farmers markets all over town and with that the arrival of early spring vegetables.  Remember, we’ll be at Peachtree Road Farmers Market and Grant Park Farmers Market as usual starting on April 11, giving East Atlanta a rest this year.
If you’re lucky enough to know someone who forages or forage yourself, then you know it will soon be time to head for the hills to find mushrooms, ramps, sorrel and more wonderful wild things.

Spring, enjoy it while we can, as it is usually such a fleeting moment.

Stay Hungry!
