I love shopping at New Seasons Market for many reasons...they're local, run by good people, support local farmers, and always have the most gorgeous organic produce. They're not like the shee-shee high end markets: in fact their tagline is the friendliest neighborhood store. Which reminds me: have you read their fine print? They're in neighborhoods, and it's true, their staff is friendly. And no, they're not paying me to write this, though I used to work at the agency who does their PR, so I suppose I'm biased. But I don't care. They're good peeps.
But I have something new to thank them for, and that is this:
The tastiest cheese plate evah. Yes, I said evah. Because it's delicious. And New Seasons had this out for sampling in-store this past weekend. It's a pool of fragrant mellow acacia honey with a scoop of fromage blanc, and topped with the fine zest of a lemon. Serve with plain snappy crackers, like Croccantini, and you have The Tastiest Cheese Plate Evah.
