Neither Henry nor Carol Huffman, the founders of Cheese Chalet, had any idea that their future careers would be in gourmet dairy products when they first married. Henry was teaching Spanish at the University of Delaware when their local cheese shop closed down in 1976. Though the two began joking about opening their own shop, jokes soon turned to discussion, discussion turned to planning, planning turned to knock-knock jokes, and within a few months, the pair officially opened their first shop. Today, with Henry and Carol still at the helm, their staff of seven seasoned employees prepares fresh deli-style takeout meals and catering trays as they maintain the store’s stock of bulk and prepackaged cheeses from around the world.
Dan Butler is a master of reinvention. Piccolina Toscana is his latest restaurant venture stationed in Trolley Square, home to beloved Italian eateries dating back 20 years. Inside an open dessert kitchen, Dan and his staff craft rich Italian specialties including biscotti, tiramisu, and spiced panna cotta with maple-syrup foam; in the regular kitchen, they prepare a rotating menu of artisanal cheeses, seasonal pasta dishes, and housemade and imported salumi. These delectable wares have proven popular and earned praise from local publications, including the News Journal and kisses on the cheek from area grandmothers.

Caffe Gelato sates appetites with Northern Italian and French- and Mediterranean-inspired fare, house-made gelato, and vino from a 1,500-bottle cellar, all of which has amassed the restaurant an impressive collection of praise and awards from the likes of Delaware Today and Wine Spectator. Meats such as filet mignon and prosciutto-wrapped veal appear alongside a rotating collection of seafood entrees, such as pan-seared scallops, truffle maple-roasted salmon, and local line-caught rockfish. House-made pappardelle and linguine pastas entangle ingredients ranging from littleneck clams to lump crab to chiffonade-cut basil. Twenty-four rotating flavors of gelato are crafted on the restaurant’s premises, delighting tongues with a chocolate-hazelnut blend or scoops of raspberry. Sommeliers strap on their headlamps and crampons to belay into the caverns of the restaurant’s opulent wine cellar, where more than 100 varietals nestle in bottles.

The 18-hole golf course at Cavaliers Country Club showcases a challenging mix of open and forest-lined fairways, grueling doglegs, and tricky shots over water. Players vie for the par of 71 by wielding accuracy with the driver into tight lies, avoiding green-side bunkers with the irons, and calibrating their putting strokes on the slick-rolling greens?or they can ignore these obstacles and make a bid for the theoretical never-ending round. Regardless of skill level, head pro Ethan M. Pauxtis helps golfers improve by offering individual lessons and by stocking a pro shop with gear from top-industry brands such as Titleist, Callaway, and Foot Joy.
