On Chowhound- General Topics, I posted a (long) story about hunting down a hard-to-find variety of gorgonzola cheese. Now that I have finally found the cheese, I gotta "spread the word" about this great little place that helped me out!
European Gourmet, 1919 W. Brandon Blvd, Brandon, FL, lives up to its name carrying imported cheeses, wursts, desserts, and miscellaneous cooking ingredients. They also make sandwiches and salads, although we didn't sample those. It's a cramped, crowded 1 aisle deli, with a wonderful atmosphere if you're hunting around for the hard-to-find, as I was. The folks behind the counter were very busy the Saturday afternoon we discovered the place, but they were friendly and smiling, and seemed genuinely as pleased as I was that I found my 'dolce gorgonzola' after coming up with dead ends so many times, elsewhere, until then.
We don't live near by, but whenever we are passing through Brandon on I-75, I will probably want to get off the Interstate and hit this store and "stock up."
Happy New Year,
