What You'll Get
For $17, this side deal gets you a 750 ml bottle of California extra- virgin olive oil (a $19.95 value) and $10 worth of artisan edibles at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge (a $29.95 total value). This Groupon must be used in-store and is not valid towards beer, wine, cooking classes, or gift certificates.
Formaggio is a gourmand's paradise that was named Best Cheese Shop in 2009 by Boston magazine and Best Gourmet Food Shop in 2010 by the Improper Bostonian. Its California mono-varietal extra-virgin olive oil, which you will receive with this Groupon, is cookable, dippable, and nearly sippable. Though Formaggio offers a wide range of imported gourmet spices, pastas, and sauces, the delectable delicatessen is best known for its great cheese wall, which contains hundreds of gourmet artisan cheeses. An in-house belowground cheese cave keeps the entire cheese stock fresh while it is taught to read, write, and count cards. Savor a variety such as Boule de Quercy, a goat's milk cheese topped with a wild raspberry leaf (5 oz. $9.95), or the strong-flavored provolone vernengo ($16.48 per half-pound). Stock and pricing may vary.
Formaggio Kitchen was rated the Best Cheese Shop in 2009 by Boston magazine and Best Gourmet Food Shop in 2010 by the Improper Bostonian. Yelpers give it a perfect five-star average and more than 80% of Urbanspooners like it.
- When the French knighted owner Ihsan Gurdal, it became official: Formaggio is cheese nobility. – Boston magazine
- The team of earthy, gourmet-food purveyors can talk for hours about their wares and seem to genuinely enjoy sharing their knowledge. Swing by, and you’ll likely sample half the cheeses on hand, plus a few hunks of bread dipped in Moroccan olive oil, or even a slug of biodynamic wine. – The Improper Bostonian
