A couple weeks ago I received an e-mail with an invitation to enjoy some of The Cheese Traveler's menu items; grilled cheese sammies and soup! You all know me by now, so this was a no brainer. YES! I'd love to try some melted, ooey gooey cheese on deliciously fresh & local bread!
Anywho, I just got back and while I am writing this post I am in the middle of eating some of the stinky wine washed blue cheese and Puckers Pickles I brought home with me. Just so you know, these pickles are addictive, so go there and pick some up..now!
Over the past year The Cheese Traveler has grown an enormous amount. They have fully stocked shelves with some of the most decadent and upscale treats I've discovered in the Capital Region.
It's the perfect spot to pick up a little something yummy for a fellow foodie.
Like Rose Simple Syrup....
Or upscale chocolate bars from Mast Brothers in Brooklyn, NY.
Once the other guests arrived and started introducing themselves to each other, Eric and the other Cheese Travelers described the ingredients in both the sandwiches and soup.
Every sandwich was made with Quinoa Multigrain bread from Bonfiglio in Hudson, NY and hand-churned Normandie butter, which we were able to taste beforehand.
While they were making the sandwiches people were mingling, tasting the soups, and buying some cheese for later!
The soups are not pictured, but they offered a Vegan Tomato and a Zurek which included White Sour Rye Morscht with Rolf's Kielbasa & Tilldale Farm Eggs. I'm not usually a fan of soup, but I gave them both a shot and thought they were quite tasty.
