Name: Cheese sampling in Potsdam
Date: December 14, 2017
Time: 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM EST
The Potsdam Food Co-op's 2nd Thursday Sampling will be held on December 14th from 3:30 - 5:30 pm in their store at 24 Elm Street. The Say Cheese Please! feature will be December's Cheese of the Month; Brie D’amir. Brie D’amir is a French Double Crème soft ripened cheese that contains 60 - 75% butterfat resulting in a creamier cheese with a wonderful buttery flavor. Understandably known as "The Queen of Cheeses", this delectable cheese is made of cow's milk and named for the Brie region in France where it originated. Its rich buttery taste with nutty undertones is perfect for any number of dishes. It is an essential addition to any cheese board and makes a delicious and decadent appetizer when wrapped and baked in puff pastry. As a quick lunch, toss Brie slices with hot pasta, sun-dried tomatoes, and black olives. Also try spreading it on focaccia and topping it with roasted tomatoes and fresh herbs as a starter. When not incorporated in a warm recipe, serve Brie D’amir at room temperature. Known as one of the great dessert cheeses, serve it with fresh fruit such as berries, pears, apples, grapes, or layer it with apple slices and serve it with warm caramel. Brie D’amir pairs well with sparkling wines, whites Chardonnay or Pinot Gris, reds Merlot or Syrah, or apple cider. The Potsdam Food Co-op & Carriage House Bakery and Deli is located at 24 Elm St. and is open daily from 8am to 7pm. It is a member-owned cooperative grocery store (although membership is not required) where everyone is welcome to shop and anyone is welcome to join.
