Do You Like Fresh Italian Cheese?

I do, I do. So does Paul DiCarlo over at Jimmy’s Food Store. Paul just announced that next week he is doing a pre-order of two of my favorites: burrata and stracchino. I still dream about an arugula salad and cherry tomatoes topped with a couple of dollops of warm burrata drizzled with olive oil I ate in San Francisco. Don’t go crazy ordering it, once it’s made, burrata only keeps 4 or 5 days. Stracchino, with a taste that is sort of a cross between buttermilk and brie, lasts a little longer–say 10 days–but Mr. DiCarlo says that it freezes well. So there you have it. But where would Italian cheese be without Italian wine? I am so glad you asked. Jimmy’s is having a wine closeout on Vivante, a dry Lambrusco, which is “perfect for a summer BBQ.” Regularly priced at $10.99, Mr. D has marked it down to $5.99 a bottle or $30 fir a 6-pack. E-mail [email protected] your cheese orders. Get off the couch and hit the store for the wine. 4901 Bryan at Fitzhugh. 214-823-6180.
