While we can pack a gift basket or box with any cheese you like, or with an assortment designed to provide a “Cheese 101” experience at home, our favorite gift remains this simple, classic collection. Three great cheeses – 1/4 or 1/2 lb. each – with a wood-handled cheese knife and our favorite fig jam. We can choose our local favorites for you, or customize the selection to your preferences. Essentials gift boxes are priced at $50 and $100.
Give someone the gift of warm comfort food (who doesn’t love melted cheese?) with a Boska Tapas Fondue Set ($20) for two or Partyclette ($15).
Include a copy of our fondue recipe and a selection of Alpine cheeses for something really special! Chällerhocker, Alpha Tolman, Pleasant Ridge Reserve, 1655 Gruyere, Ashbrook, Tarentaise, and Pinnacle are all great melting cheeses.
Cocktails and Cheese:
We’ve expanded our cocktail mixer selection significantly, with lots of beautiful things! All of these items make fabulous drinks, whether paired with alcohol or not. A few drops of bitters or a teaspoon of syrup can turn seltzer water into something really special. Dashfire Bitters are perfect with winter spirits like rye and bourbon – and they’re also delicious mixed into whipped cream or egg nog! $17.99
We have lots of sweet syrups for mixing with cocktails, hot chocolate, coffee, or seltzer – my current favorite is Tippleman’s Barrel Aged Cola Syrup, which pairs so beautifully with bourbon and a piece of Gruyere that I can’t think of a better treat on a cold night. $11.49 – $19
We have so much beautiful chocolate in the shop right now! My favorites for flavor/texture interplay are from Nathan Miller; for something simpler, you can’t beat the clean, deep flavors of Fruition Chocolate. $7.99-12.99
And my old friends and long-time favorites from France’s Michel Cluizel are on the shelves, too. These are some of the best-quality chocolates I’ve ever tasted. The dark chocolate bars are simply delicious, and the holiday bars are full of beautiful little accents. $9.95 – 10.99
As always, we’re here to answer questions and make recommendations any time. Please email the shop or give us a call at (978) 501-3142. Happy Holidays!
