Culinary Market in Rochester, MN
I passed by a store "Culinary Market" in Rochester. It's by 300 FIrst (the old broadstreet cafe).
I did not get a chance to stop. Anyone else have any info on this?
Yeah, its a nice place. If you've seen the kiosk at Rochester Produce you get a flavor of the stuff.....maybe 15-20 gourmet and artisan cheeses, iberico and serrano ham, olives, flavored oils, sugars and salts etc. I would urge folks who want access to this kind of stuff in Rochester to support the venture.
If you drop in, she does tastings and wine pairings. Very helpful lady.
Tonight's dinner was entirely from the shop....Brillat Savarin; an amazing nutty goat cheese from france, Marissa; a local salty sheepsmilk cheese, some pork and chicken pate, some of their great take and bake bread. Added a bottle of marlboro sauvignon blanc and we feasted.
It is so great to have a first class cheese shop in a town this size.
