Day 620 : Cheeses of France Pop-Up

The Cheeses of France hosted a pop up at Openhouse Gallery today at 201 Mulberry and boy was it an ode to French cheese and wine. It was an opportunity for the general public to discover French cheeses that you might not know, a chance to procure all the great French cheeses at an extremely affordable price on American soil and even discover a few obscure French cheeses for those of us in the now. 

Upon walking in, you were greeted with a wall of cheese cases and tons of cheeses available for the tasting, if you didn't see a cheese you wanted to taste, you could easily ask the very nice people behind the counter to unwrap a cheese for you to try.

After tasting through those cheeses, you could walk down a flight of stairs to watch Ash from Top Chef do a variety of demos. You also could have the opportunity to taste a variety of "American foods crafted with a French twist utilizing the cheeses featured as you walked in." So there was grilled cheese, frittatas, mac n' cheese, a Saint Andre cheese based dip for veggies and more along with Cotes du Rhone red wine, and lemonade and other sparkling sodas. 

Overall it was a totally fun way to spotlight to the NYC masses the fantastic and fabulous world of French cheese. If you didn't get to stop by, I at least recommend checking out their website so you can get an idea more of what the Cheeses of France council does --
