Coach Farm vs. Manolo Blahnik

This morning we came across this blog post and just had to share it! It says something when your cheese is preferred over a pair of Manolos!

Murray's Cheese is as magical as a unicorn.

It's got everything going for it. A perfect location. CHEESE. Olives of every ilk. CHEESE. Weird and special yogurt. CHEESE. Oh you get my drift.

The thing is, I'm a little bit terrified of the cheese counter.Without hesitation I'll pick up off-the-shelf items like honey on the comb, artisinal butters and yogurts, small loaves of local bread, and other rare and special things. But pulling a number for service at the counter. . . I just can't do it.

And that's why I have to call in my cheese husband, Vince. Lisa and Vince have perfect taste, and they always know a lot about the delicasies that rock. They've introduced me to truffle cheese, and Mrs. Quick's cheddar, and all kinds of Murray's delciousness. So when I get a hankering for a hunk of cheese, I ask Vince to come along. He knows the best cheesemongers and all the right questions to ask them. Tonight I wanted a goat cheese, and after answering 5 quick questions I came away with a perfect, mild, semi-soft goat cheese from Spain. Feeling brazen, I chose a tasty wedge of riccotta salata all on my own. Oh how I love living in a city where I can walk a few blocks, open a door, and have unlimited access to the world's very best cheese. Carrie Bradshaw had her shoes, but I'll take a Coach Farm Triple Cream over Manolo's any day.
