Subject: Who Needs Mozzarella?
.hi BFM fans
At Market This Week: And yes, we are open rain or shine, winds or not
SWIRLY GIRL CREAMERY Who needs Mozzarella? Tomatoes LOVE their Mooster in a salad. Try the Tommy Goat to make your pesto. Are you ready for a Greek Salad with tomatoes, cucumber and WHIPPED feta? Yes, whip their feta and you will be delighted by what this simple change in texture does. Mark also likes to spread Winter morning on cucumbers.
- Morbier: this semi soft cow cheese with a layer of vegetable ash is a shout out to one of my favorite French cheeses and caused a formal French Diplomat to get so riled she threw a basket of it AT Mark.
- Winter Morning is their most popular, a bloomy rind cheese that Mark loves to spread.
- Feta, Tomato Basil Bovre and Farmhouse cow cheeses are all great with pasta -- or on crackers.
- You like Funky cheese, they have Firetruck and Cowttin. Firetruck is a salty, hard, grater, Cowttin is similar to a triple cream. The longer you keep it, the funkier it gets. Very French.
