Any chance that we can celebrate the wide world of cheese is a good day for me, given that it is one of my favorite types of food to eat in the world! When you have a whole day devoted to it on a national level, it just makes everything that much better! National Cheese Day is happening this coming Saturday, June 4th, and one of our favorite hotels in New York City is planning a super awesome pop up shop the day of to celebrate the day in style! This hotel is Sofitel New York, and they have a lot in store for the masses to enjoy in two days.
Sofitel New York is once again partnering with Murray’s Cheese, New York City’s oldest cheese shop, for National Cheese Day on Saturday, June 4. Une petite fromagerie will be open from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the hotel’s signature restaurant, Gaby Brasserie Française. Donations are welcome and will benefit The Bowery Mission in its goal to provide help and hope to the homeless and impoverished of New York City.
Guests will enjoy tastings of select artisanal cheeses and receive assistance from a cheesemonger, knowledgeable in the finer points of cheese, as they make their choices. Selections will include a Ewephoria Sheep Milk Gouda from Holland; three cheeses from France, including a Comté Saint Antoine cow’s-milk cheese, a Tomme Crayeuse cow’s-milk cheese and a Saint-Maure de Touraine pasteurized chevre; and two cheeses from Vermont, which include a Jasper Hill Farm Bayley Hazen Blue and a Spring Brook, Reading cow’s-milk cheese.
