My Last Day in Cheese at the New Amsterdam Market
It was beautiful this past weekend. Perfect weather for selling some cheese at the market. My dad and I started setting up around 10:30 and we were put next to Scott Bridi from Brooklyn Cured.
The market was holding a Danish Smørrebrød (pronounced smoe-bruth, open-faced sandwiches on rye) and Beer Garden event so, all sorts of people dropped by.
Even Chef Nate Appleman and his family, which was awesome. He was very humble and tried some cheese. His kid really loved it too and I remarked, “He has a good palate” to which Appleman replied, “I’m teaching him young.” So cool.
So many of my friends came down to say hi, which was awesome. Shout outs to Josh, Jena, Seth, Nate, Holly, Liz, Ginger, Kim, Wes and his friend (I can’t remember his name :-/), Jason, Jill and their friend Matt, and Rich and Nancy. It was great showing everyone what we do and have them taste the product that I’m always talking about. It really made my day. A great way to close out our market season.
I’m in the process of creating a blue cheese dressing. Once I tweak it to the point of greatness, it’ll be around for people to try and give feedback.
I’ve set a date with Anne Saxelby and I’ll be interviewing her on December 6. Josh is still in the process of writing up the Iron Cook competition piece. Sounded like it was a great time. Can’t wait to hear about all the pomegranate concoctions that people came up with.
I’ll also be documenting my pie making process. I sorta took the easy way out and am not making crusts (except for the graham cracker crust for the key lime) since we don’t have a rolling pin, but everything else that’ll be put in will be homemade. Four pies. Pretty ambitious, but I think they’ll turn out great.
Oh, and I’m seeing the Peewee Herman show tomorrow. Don’t be TOO jealous 😉
