I’m gratified so many of you share my passion for fabulous gourmet cheeses. I specialize in small production, high end, artisanal cheeses – particularly of the organic, kosher and low-fat varieties.
My cheeses are a blend of creativity and flavor – a colorful fusion of my Eastern European Jewish heritage, the ethnic Italian neighborhood that I grew up in and my proximity to Amish farm territory. In collaboration with farmers and artisan cheese makers, I produce small batches of handcrafted cheeses based on my own recipes and formulas. Don’t worry, I make sure to taste every batch.
I’ve been involved in the specialty food business ever since I graduated George Washington University with an MBA in International business more than two decades ago, and in recent years I’ve branched off to focus primarily on cheese. My entrepreneurial spirit extends back to my junior high and high school days when I successfully ran local neighborhood businesses, helping to employ family and friends.
I’m excited to present cheese connoisseurs with a mouthwatering variety of cheeses. And since our runs are exclusively Kosher, we’ve whet the Kosher palate as well – expanding their repertoire of choices and taking Kosher cheeses to entirely new heights. The adventurous spirit will love our exotic combos like jalapeno cheddar jack and marble and those who crave Blue Cheese should try our distinctive version made by 3rd generation Wisconsin master cheese makers.
While most of my cheeses are produced domestically at family owned dairy farms, I do produce some cheeses abroad in Italy – made in the finest Italian tradition in small dairies that dot the countryside. Make sure to try our Pecorino Romano cheese aged over 18 months – it’s the best of the best!
Cheese, like fine wine, is best enjoyed in the company of family and friends. So take the time to explore my site and you’ll discover a choice of cheeses to please every taste and age. Have fun and make sure to smile and say CHEESE, or KAAS, or QUESO, or GVINA, or TOMME, or KASE!
