Cheese Mania Strikes

Cherry Grove CheesesWhat is it about fall?  More than any other time of year, I crave cheese when the weather turns cold.  (Look for some posts and an article in the Packet later this week that continue on the cheese theme).

So when I stopped by Cherry Grove Farm the other day for some eggs (the best around!), I couldn’t resist a wedge of their Buttercup Brie and a tub of their Fromage Blanc with Herbes de Provence.

The Brie, which I first had at the September 1 Outstanding in the Field dinner at the farm, is indeed a lovely buttery yellow hue.  Even at this runny stage, it is still mild. The Fromage Blanc comes in many other flavors, like garlic and peppercorn, too.  Both went well with the slightly sweet Carr’s Whole Wheat crackers I keep on hand.  I’m looking forward to putting together an all-local cheese platter for holiday dinners this year!

  1. greetings: I am not from the Princeton area, but do come down frequently. Where would you suggest other than whole foods for a REAL cheese shop. Real meaning local, slow food, maybe actually smells like a cheese shop kind of place? There are times that I go and buy a 1/2 bottle for myself and want something stinky to go with it. cheers! wb

  2. Bon Appetit is an old-world style cheese (and more) shop in Princeton Shopping Center on N. Harrison St. But I don’t know how much local/NJ cheese they carry, oddly enough – guess I always get French or Italian there…

    For for local, I go to Cherry Grove Farm on Rt 206 in Lawrenceville, where they make cheese from their own cows. Love their Buttercup Brie.
