Formaggio Kitchen Crew Travels to France
The folks at Formaggio Kitchen have it really tough. Though they're based in New York and Boston, they import cheeses from all over the world. This means travelling to idyllic places, like France and Switzerland, and tasting precious cheeses while talking to the makers. What a hard-knock life (of which we are insanely jealous.)
Yanich, our guide for the afternoon, greeted us shortly after we walked through the massive wooden doors, effectively entering into a hillside. Gifted with a warm smile and easy humor, he spoke authoritatively and proudly of the history of Fort St. Antoine and the pedigree of the Comté aged within it. Soon we met with Claude Querry, the Fort’s Master Taster (Chef du Cave).
