Wonderful Kosher Cheese

marcia2 Sep 30, 2007 05:49 PM

I had great artisanal, raw milk, kosher cheese today from 5 Spoke Creamery. I know it's available at Whole Foods in White Plains, NY and, I'm pretty sure, Dean & DeLuca and some other places and will be in more stores soon.

Full disclosure, the owners are my neighbors and I think they're very nice people and would love to see this go well for them. But I promise, I wouldn't be recommending the stuff unless I really liked it. I got to try the cheddar and the colby today and really enjoyed them both.

Let me put it this way, I don't keep kosher. I have access to lots of wonderful cheese. I'll be buying this cheese.

        I've bought it on Deliciousorganics.com. They even have the Tumbleweed, which I read about in the NY Times!

            The cheese has Kof K certification. I've seen it at Super Sol, Barzini's, Zabars, and Fairway.

              i saw some at whole foods but it was like $20 lb. I do plan to buy some
              because it sounds really good but I'm hoping to find it a little cheaper.

              i bought some sugar river at fairway and that was great also.

                A while back as Supersol, they were selling it by the piece instead of weight. (i'm not usre if they still do this. ) If they still do this, you can find a nice peice at a decent price. (This is my jewish side speaking.)

            This sounds great! A kosher cheese like this is high on the cool quotient of things I'd buy on line if it's not available in Atlanta, where I live.

              I am a real chesse lover and I'm willing to pay the price for good cheese. There is nothing better than a milchik meal with a cheese course. I recently discovered 5 Spoke Creamery and I'm hooked. My kids came over tonight and I discovered that all my cheese is gone. They've raided the fridge and taken the stuff that they can't afford to buy on their own.

                  the herbal jack is pretty good, havent tried the others yet.
                  you can find these all over NYC, a but pricey though.

                      I don't know if it's in the midwest yet. Their website is www.5spokecreamery.com.
