the girl & the fig new custom built cheese bar ...

... called the “Salon de Fromage”

Just got an email from the restaurant about it. Link to info on website below.

Supposedly they have 'cheese flights', and on site cheese expert (who knows) and some house made cheeses. Cheeses can be purchased by the pound to take home.

Not on the website (which has most of the email info) is the following:

“Part of our cheese program will include our house-made cheeses, guest cheese maker visits and scheduled cheese & wine pairings,” says Bernstein. “We want this to be interactive, educational and of course delicious. Our Executive Chef, John Toulze is particularly excited about his house-made ricotta, mozzarella fresca and crème fraiche.”

Rats! I was going to stop by last Tuesday but was too stuffed with NY pizza. That house-made mozzarella would have been nice to try with the tomatoes from the Sonoma Farmers Market.

Don't know if the cheeses are limited to what is on the website which include some of the usual California suspects, a few raw milk and farmstead European cheeses and Pierre Robert

If you check the events link on the website, there are some good suggestions for food events, one of which Sondra Bernstein is participating in which I can highly recommend having attended this in the past.
