This Saturday, March 29, feast your eyes on a mighty big cheese tray at Gaucho Gourmet, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The warehouse/store full of fine imported foods at 935 Isom Road will be displaying and better still -- offering tastes -- from an array of 40 to 50 of the best European and local Texas cheeses. Plenty of accompaniments to mix and match and pair with the cheese will be on hand as well.
Hoja Santa Goat Cheese 'Cacciota'
Other highlights will be the cutting of a 100-pound aged Italian Provolone and the presence of local Texas cheesemaker Haute Goat bringing a series spreadable goat cheeses in terrific flavors such as Chimichurri, Basil Pesto, Fig & Black Pepper and Bacon/Maple/Horseradish.
Another Texas cheese to sample will be the Hoja Santa Goat Cheese made at the Mozzarella Company in Dallas. Called "Cacciota," this mellow semi-soft cheese is a Texas version of Monterey Jack and is aged 2 months.
Members of the San Antonio Chefs Coop and Alexander Vineyards, producer of fine French wines in Fredericksburg will add their comments and expertise on Saturday as well.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.gauchogourmet.com/events.html and are $10 per person.
