Fairfield Cheese Company Celebrates 3 Years w/ Free Cheese Tasting + Burgers!

10 May

If you remember that commercial, you probably feel really old and wonder why you even liked it to begin with.  If you’ve never seen that commercial, you probably wonder how we came to love cheese when there were commercials like that.  Despite that inglorious ad, spouting the virtues of a world with cheese, the melty and stringy stuff has become near and dear to our hearts.

Mooove yo’self fast to the FCC party!

One of the reasons why people in Fairfield County have fallen for cheese is three years of the Fairfield Cheese Company.  They have been selling artisanal, hand-crafted, cheese as well as farmstead cheese to their customers.  In addition, they have lots of options for meats to pair with the cheese and have lots of other great food choices.

So, they are turning three years old and decided that it’s about time to break out monster and massive amounts of cheese.  Stop by their store on Saturday, 5/19/12 from 1-4 pm for some eating fun.  You can meet Laura Downey and Chris Palumbo (owners), their mascot Meg the Cow, nibble on and rave about a cheese tasting, and om nom nom on meaty grass-fed cheeseburger sliders provided by the awesome Saugatuck Craft Butchery.

When you’re there, check out the over 100 different cheeses avaialable…oh, and they add to that quite often.  The owners make it a point to mention that they have an emphasis on American artisan cheese.  That’s something that we can get behind.

Also, on another fun note, they’ll be competing in the Third Annual Cheesemonger Invitational (did you know this existed?) in NY on 6/23/12.  Let’s cheer them on while we waft the odor of cheese to our noses, gently taste the cheese, see how the wine or beer highlights the flavor…oh, who are we kidding?  Let’s cheer them on and chow down on big hunks ‘o cheese.
