Cacio di Roma

$15.99/LB
Yes, it's a sheep's milk cheese; and yes, it's from the Roman countryside. Cacio di Roma, however, is a far cry from Pecorino Romano. Smaller, younger and softer, it's just as much of a kitchen workhorse as its hulking cousin. Use it when you're looking for smooth richness and a hint of fruit, instead of gamy, salty intensity. Melts smoothly & deliciously into sauces, pizzas, focaccia, crostini; you name it, a layer of melted Cacio di Roma is likely to make it better.

  • Farmhouse Ales

    Farmhouse, Saison, Bière de Garde, Lambic, Sour Beer

    Farmhouse ales, instead of being driven by malt or hops, depend on the yeast for their distinctive spicy, floral, and tart flavors. Commonly made by brewers in France and Belgium, farmhouse ales are usually light in color and body and quite effervescent. From time to time, brewers allow wild yeasts to ferment the beer, resulting in a brew that falls somewhere in between pleasantly bright to bracingly sour.
    Pair with: Mushroomy Brie Fermier or funky, bacony Epoisses are matches made in heaven.

  • Chianti

    Chianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.
    Pair with: An herb-crusted cheese like Hudson Flower or a young Tuscan Pecorino.

  • Pinot Grigio

    A lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.
    Pair with: Creamy goat or mixed milk cheese with a crisp acidic element. La Tur or Brunet are great alongside the fruit-tart flavors of the wine.
