Fine Cheeses and Charcuterie in St. Louis
Where can I find artisanal cheeses and charcuterie in St. Louis? I'm going to visit my sister, who lives in Clayton, and would like to find guanciale or pancetta to make carbonara.
Artisanal cheeses are available at The Wine & Cheese Place in Clayton as well as at Whole Foods and at The Wine Merchant, also in Clayton. I'll be curious to hear who has guanciale or pancetta. You may find these also at Wine & Cheese Place. I'd also check at DiGregorio's or Viviano's on The Hill. Let us know what you find.
I know DiGregorios, www.digregoriofoods.com has pancetta although I'm not sure if it is imported or domestic. It is a small italian market with a large variety of both local and imported sausage and cheese located on the Hill in South St. Louis. If you go there on a Saturday morning you could swing down to Soulard Farmers Market for the local eggs you mentioned in another post.
