Samish Bay Fresh & Aged Ladysmith
Two of our favorite seasonal cheeses are back in the case for the Summer – Samish Bay’s Fresh and Aged Ladysmith.
The Fresh Ladysmith is bright, tangy and a little sour, with a springy and moist texture. It is sold as early as the day after it’s made. The Aged Ladysmith is aged for two weeks, during which time it develops a thin rind while keeping a creamy paste. Both of these cheeses are absolutely delicious by themselves, with summer fruit, or in addition to sandwiches and pizza!
Samish Bay is a family owned and operated dairy and creamery in the Skagit Valley, in Northern Washington. The primarily Milking Shorthorn heard is 100% organic and grass fed. The herd is spoiled by the lush grasses of the valley which in turn make excellent fresh cheeses.
Please come by the shop for a taste. You won’t regret it!
Mother’s Day Wines Tasting
Thursday, May 10th, 5:30-7:30 pm
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, so we thought we would present an array of French wines to satiate any and all of your needs. All of the wines this week are organically farmed, vibrant and full of character. We will be pouring an elegant and pretty sparkling rosé of Pinot Noir made by Jean Louis Denois in the south of France, a stunning and complex Provencal rosé made up of Cinsault, Grenache, and Carignan, a chalky and mineral-laden Chenin Blanc from Saumur in the Loire valley, and then lastly, a brambly, earthy Cotes du Rhone Villages from the husband/wife team behind Domaine de la Biscarelle. We hope you can join us to taste through this diverse lineup of affordable deliciousness! As usual, the wines are discounted tomorrow night only. See you there!
