As fall approaches, our food and beverage tastes will be changing with the arrival of the new season. Included in these seasonal choices are the types of cheese that we consume. Instead of lighter options such as fresh goat's milk cheeses for your summer tomatoes and beets, it's now time for more hearty options. Autumn speaks to heartier foods, heartier beverages, and yes, heartier cheeses!
Di Bruno Bros. is proud to announce the addition of a gourmet food gift set that is sure to wow your recipient: Our Pasta, Sauce and Cheese Set Grande!
Officially, August is National Goat Cheese Month, but let’s agree: we’re past campaigning for goat cheese acceptance. Back in the 1970s, when the first goat-cheese pioneers were emerging from their milking barns in coveralls, Americans found chèvre exotic.
Buying gourmet coffee in Philadelphia just got easier! If you remember back in June, we introduced you to 9th Street's Gourmet Coffee Program. At any given time we've got a generous rotating selection of gourmet coffees from around the country available for purchase: Stumptown, Intelligentsia, Counter Culture, and Doma are just a few gourmet coffee roasters that we carry.
At the height of summer, it’s hard to think about eating anything other than fresh tomatoes and light cheeses, like mozzarella. Luckily, great mozzarella is easy to come by in Philadelphia – Di Bruno Bros. makes it fresh daily, and you can buy it in any number of sizes, from baseball-shaped rounds to braided strands to tiny beads that are great for tossing into salads.
We all know that wine and cheese go together like a horse and carriage, so we're thrilled to bring you wine and cheese pairings every Tuesday. The first is a perfect summer wine and cheese pairing courtesy of Bob Trimble, AKA The Wine Guy.
I was in a beer and cheese club where I used to live. One member was a brewer, another was a monger at the local food co-op. It really opened my tate buds up to different cheeses and how much a pairing can add to the complexity and enjoyment of eating. I really enjoyed discovering new cheeses and their story. It was this experience coupled with the atmosphere and history of DiBruno's that led me to try my hand at cheesemongery.
