Think Inside the Chevre-Box





It is a glass walled box displayed prominently at the cheese counter, a small emulation of the aging vaults back-store, and under the careful supervision of cheese-keeper Afrim Pristine. Contained within are an assortment of fine goat's milk cheeses from France and Quebec -- little chevre-jewels coated with a fine mold.

They have been subject to a careful aging process, no longer than 90 days, that culminates in each small batch receiving its one day of finishing in the climate-controlled display. Or perhaps less, such as on a busy day like today when the entire contents are purchased and replenished three times over-- with a number of hours to go until closing time!

    And what you don't see here is what is in the Chevre box now, heart-shaped ones, perfect for cheese-lovers on Valentine's. Hmmm, maybe some more pictures from the chevre-box are required....
