Many runny, stinky cheeses are not available to orthodox Jews observing a kosher diet. Until now, that is. Brent Delman began observing a kosher diet as an adult, and his love for fine cheeses drove him to perfect his own aging techniques to produce high-quality certified kosher cheese.
“They’re my babies,” Mr. Delman told a visitor at his home recently while unfolding the white paper on his personal favorite, the crumbly Bastardo del Grappa. It’s for this and the other cheeses, like the Montaggio and the Sardinian Pecorinos, that customers line up at the Riverdale Farmers Market.
