Another Saturday means another day of chatting all things cheese with friendly folks at the market, something I enjoy very much. Happily, tomorrow is no exception!
I have a couple new offerings in addition to the usual suspects. Three of them are bloomy-rinded goat cheeses from Spinning Spider Creamery in North Carolina - and two of the three are ashed as well. A little tangy, a little grassy, a lot of creamy goodness.
The other new additions, Heat and Harvest, are from the talented cheesemakers of Sweet Grass Dairy in Georgia. Stop by for a taste!
And in non-cheese news...like most Nashvillians, my brain has been singularly focused on our city post-flood. I've seen and heard some really heartbreaking things. But I've also seen and heard some of the most beautiful things. Namely, people helping each other - and asking nothing in return. Here's a link to a slideshow of some of the volunteer love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--hhbRBVcUk
And if you're looking for a fun way to contribute to flood relief, please plan to attend Generous Helpings to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank this Thursday, May 20th, at the Nashville Farmers' Market. Sample food from 30 of the best local restaurants. Beer & wine included. All for just $40!
In the meantime, happy cheese eating!
