Mac ‘n’ Cheese Mecca


Earlier this month, I had the great responsibility of judging a macaroni and cheese festival. The event, the Vermont Mac & Cheese Challenge, was hosted by the Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company and held at Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, Vt. It featured mac ‘n’ cheeses from 20 local restaurants. Since I’ve been a mac ‘n’ cheese […]

My Favorite Cheeses I Tasted While at Culture


Sadly, my time as web editorial intern at culture has come to an end. I’ve enjoyed every moment and mouthful of cheese. I take away with me a heightened knowledge and appreciation of cheese, and now I can walk up to any cheese counter with confidence. For my last blog, I’d like to share some […]

Tuesday Tasting: Sartori Cheeses Part II


Each week we taste a sampling of cheeses in our Cambridge office and discuss their flavors, textures, and our general impressions of them. Yum! Extra-Aged Asiago Cow’s Milk – Wisconsin Katherine – This cheese has a buttery sweet mouthfeel and is firm but slightly crumbly. It’s mildly salty and the taste doesn’t linger too long. […]

On Missing Paris and Finding Hope

paris-cheeseshop

Yesterday, I was in dreamland. I was at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, a much-loved cheese shop of culture staff and Boston foodies. Walk 20 minutes outside of bustling Harvard Square and you’ll find a temple of gourmet food. Chocolate, jams, and jellies line the walls alongside wooden crates of locally sourced fruits and veggies. And […]

Berkeley, California’s Gregoire (Plus a Takeout-Inspired Recipe!)


Will and I were super hyped to go eat lunch at this iconic Berkeley grub hub this past Friday. We wanted to take a fancy—well, as fancy as we could afford— break from culture‘s California office. Gregoire is a fancy takeout joint built out of a hole-in-the-wall that serves French-style cuisine. Living in Berkeley, I hear about it […]

Eatfeats.com: Your One-Stop Source For Eating Contests


Let’s be honest, we’ve all fantasized what it would be like if we entered an eating contest. I know I always imagine myself winning, and raising my food covered fist into the air in proud victory. Outside of fantasy, I don’t think I would want to cram my stomach full of hotdogs like Joey “Jaws” […]

Cheese on Sushi??!


This past Friday was the grand opening event for Zensen Sushi Express. Becoming the newest addition to sushi restaurants on Durant Ave., one of Berkeley’s go-to food spots, Zensen reeled in enough customers to have customers line out of the door to get in. My friends and I had to wait over 45 minutes just […]

Tasting Tuesday: Q Drinks


Each week we taste a sampling of cheeses in our Cambridge office and discuss their flavors, textures, and our general impressions of them. Yum! Q Tonic: Jackie E. – The Q tonic is a little bit sweet up front with a strong bitter aftertaste. I find it to be more bitter than conventional tonic water, […]

The Cheese and Beer Pairings Party


My second day of work was a blast. Can you guess why? Well, obviously from the title, you can deduce that yes– there was a party. More specifically, it was our launch party to celebrate the release of the new Beer and Cheese: Perfect Pairings Guide for Kindle and iTunes. I’ve never participated in anything […]

Tasting Tuesday: Crave Brothers and Uniekaas


Each week we taste a sampling of cheeses in our Cambridge office and discuss their flavors, textures, and our general impressions of them. Yum! Crave Brothers Mascarpone Cow’s Milk – Wisconsin Amanda – The taste is pure, the taste is simple. It tastes like a rustic scene in summer with wild flowers. Kate E. – […]
