MSP - Great Ciao

I just found out about this place. Does anyone know if they are ever open to the public? I would love to get in there! Kitchen Window offers a "class" you can take to get in and make purchases, but its $80.00..

  1. They are not open to the public except through that class, as far as I know. It's really a distributor, and they cannot afford to sell on a small scale (you have to buy a wheel of cheese, not a wedge, for example). My husband has an account there, and Scott (the owner) really does have access to some amazing ingredients. Maybe you and your hound friends could pool together and one could go via Kitchen Window and everyone could share the booty?? Good luck!!
