We have been having some beautiful sunny days here in Walla Walla (thanks to all our friends on the East Coast who are taking one for the team this year). And with those sunny days we are seeing our shelves fill back up once again. There is lots to tell so I’ll just jump right in.
The newest edition of Culture Magazine arrived Thursday and I have to say, best issue yet! Really loaded with tons of great information, this really is a MUST for the cheese enthusiast.
The latest issue of Imbibe also just arrived and it too is jam packed with some great articles and reviews. If you haven’t picked up either of these you need to, they are truly great publications by people who know and care.
We have several new cheeses that just arrived, the most important being BUFFALO MILK MOZZARELLA! Yes, I have brought it in early this year and we will continue to carry this year round as long as there is demand. I know many of you like making homemade pizzas and you have been asking so here you go. I do what I can for my peeps. Chimay Grand Cru and Biere cheese has arrived as well. For those of you not familiar with these come in and try them, they are fantastic and especially so with a great Belgian beer, more on that later. Fromager des Clarines is back too for those of you who have missed it. Abbey de Belloc is a beer washed, firm sheep’s milk cheese that will renew your love of cheese. A beautiful pale ivory paste, with a delicate sweet flavour, almost makes you think it is cows milk. We continue to source amazing cheese from all over the globe and if you have found something you love and must have let us know, we’ll try to track it down for you.
Beer! Our latest GUSTIAMO! event was held last night, a tasting of Trappist Beers. We had a great turnout, thank you to all who attended, everyone had the opportunity to taste and buy from a very comprehensive line up of 5 of the 7 Trappist breweries and everyone got to take home a glass too! We still have many of these beers available for those of you who want to do your own tasting from the comfort of your own home or even sit here at the store and drink one, or two…We can even pair up the beers with some cheese and charcuterie too.
For those of you that haven’t yet heard we are also selling great hot dogs and sausages made by Zenner’s of Portland. Zenner’s has been rockin’ P-Town with great sausages for almost 100 years. They have a strong commitment to quality, just like us. So we are selling their sausages by the pound to take home and try AND we are also serving them up in the store for lunch too (all day actually). We even have a special knockwurst sandwich that is getting some great response locally. Come in and take some home or try one here, we think you’ll love them as much as we do. We also have our corned beef and hot ham and cheese everyday too!
Speaking of corned beef, St. Patricks Day is just around the corner and we have put up a few extra pounds of our famous house made corned beef just because. We’ll have the corned beef sammy’s available all the time but we’ll also have corned beef that you can purchase by the pound. As an added bonus we’ll also be serving our famous corned beef and cabbage in store the week of March 15. Ours is the BEST you’ll ever have. Trust us.
That about wraps up the latest news. Come in and try something new and tasty today, you just might find something you love. Cheers.
