If At First You Don’t Succeed…

salerby Andrew Chalk

Rich Rogers, owner of Scardello Artisan Cheese, is nothing if not persistent. At the American Cheese Show last year he tasted a cheese named Salers and had an aha moment. It was God’s cheese and he had to have it. He gave the vendor an order for a wheel, price unseen. Only later, while waiting for delivery from France, did he have symptoms of buyer’s remorse at not having firmed up the price. It turned out price would be the least of his ‘Salers Problems’.

His east coast importer called to confirm that his wheel was on its way and just entering customs. It never made it out. The FDA, always protecting us from ourselves, had seized the wheel because it contained cheese mites. Cheese mites are tiny organisms that both live on certain cheeses and contribute to flavor. They have existed virtually forever. Their crime? According to the FDA, some people are allergic to them.   Continue reading

2009 Poliziano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.1by Andrew Chalk

WinePoste.com, a Design District Internet wine seller and wine event space has teamed up with Scardello Cheese to do monthly wine and cheese tasting classes. It’s a powerful combination. One of best cheese merchants in town paired with a quality wine merchant (while WinePoste is brand new, its principals have over 30 man-years in the wine business). This week I was fortunate to be a guest at the first event, Tuscany Wine and Cheese Pairing.   Continue reading

2013 Savor Dallas Wrap Up

whiteby Steven Doyle

Another session of Savor Dallas has been tucked under our belts, and formidable host Jim White is already at work planning the 2014 version. This year White seemed more at ease with his progeny, having planned what can only be described as a perfect series of events that lasted nearly an entire week.

The smattering of events scattered a wider path this year, having touched on new areas of Dallas including the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, up-and-comer Trinity Groves, and even the Arboretum. Each spot White visited he left a pot of gold as his legacy for this St Patrick’s Day weekend.   Continue reading

Meet Mrs. Ali Hammer

Our friend Ali Kay is off the market and freshly married to a fine beer, the Peticolas Velvet Hammer.  When we interviewed Ali for the original story where she announced her engagement we were at a restaurant, and our neighbors to the right of our table were horrified to learn that this young woman would marry a beer. The heart wants what the heart wants, and in this case Ali wanted a beer for life so she married one.   Continue reading

Local Cheesemonger Will Marry A Beer (And You Are Invited To The Wedding)

DSC04196by Steven Doyle

You may very well know Ali Morgan the cheese maven over at Scardello Artisan Cheese on Oak Lawn in Dallas. She is the local cheerleader for all things cheese. She shouldn’t be a stranger to long tie craveDFW readers; we have featured her cheese antics on several occasions here, and even followed her when she went in for a tat. One of Ali’s missions at Scardello is to peddle cheese wholesale to local restaurants, that is why you will often find an Ali cheese board listed on menus in Dallas. She can also be found doing double duty at beer or wine dinners where she pairs up her cheese.

To say Ali has an offbeat sense of humor might be an understatement, but she has this amazing passion for things she enjoys most. One of those things is a good craft beer. Ali is so passionate about beer that she plans to marry one December 30, 2012 and you are invited to witness the ceremony at Peticolas Brewing Company for a mere $30, which includes four hours of beer, a special commemorative wedding pint glass and the open keg reception where you can taste Velvet Hammer, the groom.  Continue reading
