The Cheese Store
The Cheese Store's on-site cheese aging facility allows its artisan, farmhouse, and imported cheeses to reach their flavor-packed peak ripeness. The Cheese Store stocks more than 10 cow and sheep varieties of blue cheeses, and its bloomy rind cheeses have no chemical stabilizers and melt on the tongue like buttery, rich snowflakes. Grate a pile of salty Pecorino Romano ($12.99/lb.) atop your favorite pasta to pique its flavor, or spread creamy Humboldt Fog goat cheese ($22.99/lb) on a toasted baguette. Stinky washed rind cheeses, such as the savory Morbier ($15.99/lb.), are often used by grizzly bears and as a delicate perfume.
