Since after a long night of election partying, you need a nice hearty cheese plate to get you going the next morning - and Cambridge will soon have it's own knight of cheese:
On Monday (Nov. 10), the Consul General of France in Boston will present the medal of the French Order of the “Mérite Agricole” — translation: “agricultural merit” — to (Formaggio owner) Gurdal for his passion for French fare.
I figure that now we have a new world order, we're probably not supposed to make as much fun of the French anymore, eh? I do find it odd that his cheese shop uses the Italian name, however.
Robert Aguilera, manager and cheese buyer for the Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge has teamed up with Julie Cappellano, the wine buyer at the South End Formaggio to bring Boston, the Bueno Queso Social Club. These are monthly wine and cheese pairing classes.
The next class is titled, "From the Stiletto Heel to the Thigh Highs of Italy." and will take place on March 25th at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge.
