Spring Cheese Tasting: An All Goat Flight

Saturday, April 17,  4 & 6 p.m.
Quince Fine Foods, 209 W. Girard Ave (at 2nd Street)
$12/person; email reservations appreciated (

A few weeks ago, Nicole, Joan and I sampled a new series of goat cheeses produced in Elverson, PA at a small dairy called Amazing Acres. We loved their goat cheeses so much that we invited cheesemaker Debbie Mikaluk to join us for an introduction to her line. Debbie makes some unusual goat cheeses for this area, including a bloomy, ash-streaked cheese she calls Sea Smoke. 

Please join us for an all-goat-cheese flight. I'll be there to talk recipes and share pairing ideas, and Debbie will be on hand to wax poetic about Nubian goats. Quince is proud to be one of the only cheese counters in Philadelphia offering these gorgeous, handmade cheeses.

Note: due to increased demand, we are now hosting two tastings, one at 4 p.m., the other at 6 p.m. We start on time and serve our cheeses Slow Food style, one at time, so guests can savor. A complimentary glass of wine is included with the last pairing.


  1. I called this afternoon as soon as I saw your post. YUMMMM. So glad I found this blog. Thank you, you cheese lover you!!

  2. I adore cheese and am so happy to find your fabulous blog! Do you like to do wine pairings with your cheeses? One of my favorite things:) I just signed up to follow you - stop by and visit me sometime at Looking forward to your next post!

  3. Amazing Acres cheese is amazing... I'm in love with the roasted garlic, the cranberry and the cracked pepper. And their Fromagina is AWESOME.

  4. Glad you and the Quince gang got to meet them and make the connection!
