It's blanket-in-the-grass weather. Time to toss the cheese in a hamper and head to the beach. That's why we're dedicating our next tasting to easy packers, cheese that doesn't require utensils or even an ice pack. Join us for a Slow Food-style sampling of three picnic cheeses, including a marinated chevre, an easy-to-cube Basque beauty, and a runny French dream that comes in its own crock -- perfect for two.
For the summer season, Quince is offering take-out picnics -- reserve a vintage basket and blanket, then order a selection of sandwiches or tapas items that will be packed and ready for pick-up on your way to the park. Call for details: 215.232.3425
