Like Water for Cheese
Posted by:  Andrew Vennari

Good cheese is a precious commodity. It may be old, smelly and expensive; but it's well worth it. We all have our weaknesses. Parmigiano Reggiano happens to be mine. I cannot live without that briny, aged-18-months goodness. If you're like me, you want to taste your cheese before you purchase it. This is one reason I go to 24th Street Cheese, because when there are well over 200 cheeses the decision process can be daunting--and they welcome you to sample before you buy. You can smell the place even before you push through the screen door. The chalkboards menu is full of names from around the world, goudas and triple creams, pecorinos and blues from California to New Zealand. But cheese-o-phile beware, if you make one too many ridiculous requests here, be prepared to get the boot.

24th Street Cheese Company

Attention all cheese lovers! At ease. If you are buying your cheese at Bell Markets or Safeway (or any place other than the Cheese Co. on 24th) then drop your gaze and bow your head in shame. With a ginormous black board listing well over a hundred gourmet cheeses broken down alphabetically by type, an informative (and on occasion, hoity-toity) staff that makes suggestions and offers samplings, I can’t think of any reason not to have my ashes spread ‘neath the store’s foundation. Though it’s not the best smelling joint around, it is the only evidence I’ve seen thus far that proves the existence of God…somewhere…in the form of a cow, a goat, or a sheep. In short, it is the specialty food shop for the cheese connoisseur—or the common man seeking a highly caloric delicious dairy snack. Favorites include the creamy D’affinois, the Prima Donna (aged gouda), the Petite Basque (sheep milk), or Humbolt Fog. They also sell wines, specialty crackers, salami, and anything else that pairs nicely with cheese. Fondue pots? Check.
