Domestic Dazzlers

Domestic Dazzlers Tastings Gourmet Market

Come in and enjoy these domestic dazzlers! The American cheeses we have at Tastings Gourmet Market are handcrafted, award-winning, artisanal cheeses that compare well with — and often beat — their European cousins.

Mixed Milk Wonders

Mixed Milk Wonders - Tastings Gourmet Market

Why do cheesemakers use more than one kind of milk? Because it opens up a world of exciting new flavors and textures made possible only by mixing two or more kinds of milk.  Goat’s milk adds tang, cow’s milk adds fatty sweetness, and sheep’s milk contributes rich, nutty flavor.  The possibilities are endless.  Cheesemakers use their […]

We're Melting - Tastings Gourmet Market

Ewenique Sheep’s Milk Cheese

Ewenique Cheeses - Tastings Gourmet Market

Our featured cheeses this week are truly “ewenique”— they’re all made with sheep’s milk. Because the milk is much higher in protein and healthy fats than cow’s milk or goat’s milk, sheep’s milk cheeses tend to be ultra-rich and creamy. Some of our most popular cheeses at Tastings are made from sheep’s milk, and we’re […]
