What’s New and Now
This Thursday marks our third weekend at the Minneapolis Farmers’ Market. Today promises to be the best, weather-wise, of the lot: the kind of Spring day you dream of when you’re cooped up inside on a frigid January day. Before I dash, a few mentions:
–D’Amico & Sons has created a featured panini for May with asparagus, Bent River, cotto ham and an onion marmalade. You can find it at all Minnesota locations. I love seeing a chef put together flavor and texture combinations well beyond my culinary imagination–so thanks, Jim, for your talent and decision to use our cheese!
–This will be a busy weekend: Friday evening is the 17th annual Winefest benefiting the Amplatz Children’s Hospital. The good folks at Kowalski’s Markets have invited me to join their tasting table. Great event, great cause. Saturday, I’ll be at stall 343 for the farmers’ market (weather again looking very nice), then off to Kowalski’s Woodbury for a demo from 2-5.
–Bent River has found its way to NYC! Thanks to our newest distributor, Food Matters Again, you can now find our cheese at a number of cheese shops in Manhattan and Brooklyn. While we are only in a few pockets of the country, I can legitimately say we are carried coast-to-coast.
–Lunds and Byerly’s Markets are featuring Bent River this month. Thanks John, Jenny, and all the great cheese people there!
Enjoy this beautiful day, Minnesota, and stop by today if you are in the Twin Cities–we’ll be at the corner of Nicollet and 8th St.
