Alessandra's Cheese - Mah!

One of our favorite cheeses and cheese makers was profiled in this past week's Independent paper.  Alessandra Trompeo from Piemonte, Italy who now makes her Italian style cheeses here in Durham, had a great interview along with photos in the paper.  We sell her Duchessa cheese - savory, buttery and firm with nice salinity - perfect with a glass of Barbera wine, in the store. Her cheese business is called La Casa dei Formaggi.  You can read her article and meet her in the store Sept 10th, or buy her cheese any time we are open.  - Salamanzar  (The photo is Derek Anderson's from the Indy week article .)
