Kimba is to food and wine what I am to prep, so if she tells me something is yummy or sophisticated in the arena of gastronomy I treat it like gospel (she also gets credit for my love of Vueve Cliquot and taught me how to order a Bombay Sapphire on the rocks).
Now, my Old Chatham habit has expanded to include their award winning Nancy's Hudson Valley Camembert which is c'est magnifique! This year's Christmas gift to my parents was a Simon Pearce cheeseboard and a selection of artisanal cheeses including Nancy's Camembert. My dad ended up smuggling the Camembert, in his suitcase, to their home in Mexico. They enjoyed it so much that I was asked to bring some more to Easter dinner. But, if you'd prefer to be très boring and bypass the whole covert, smuggling and luxury shipping operations just pick up their yogurts and cheeses at your local Whole Foods. Bon appétit!
PS...I am not a fan of their plain yogurt but, the ladies of Old Chatham confided in me that the maple flavor is just the plain with about a teaspoon of maple syrup mixed in. So, if your left with only the plain, maybe you could try doctoring with a little honey. Also, for you G'towners, unfortunately the Glover Park Whole Foods only carries the plain (boo hoo...) but you can find the yummy flavors at Dean and Deluca.
Kindness of Kimba...does this make amends for "outing" you in the closet piece?
