Working practically next door to Chelsea Market is very hazardous for a foodie such as I – it’s like holding an A.A. meeting next door to Liquors-R-Us.
I am always tempted to pop in and check out what new goodies are available for me to feast on. Today I stopped by Lucy’s Whey (clever, non?) a small cheese shop that offers local, artisinal cheeses from small-scale cheesemakers. I told the girl at the counter that I’m a fan of brie and she recommended the “Noble Road” from Calkin’s Creamery in PA, which is qualified as a “semi-soft, bloomy cheese with mushroomy accents”.
The texture was less gummy than that of brie. The taste had less of that fungal pungency that I am so fond of.
Either way, it made for a light, fabulous dinner along with Wheat-Thins, fruit and Chardonnay.
