Cheese Whiz
A New Dogpatch Temple of Cheese

Congratulations. You’re in the homestretch.

Mistletoe: hung. Stockings: stuffed. Lists: checked. (Twice, in fact.)

A quick hostess gift for your next holiday party: ...

Uh-oh.

Stay calm and say bonjour to La Fromagerie, a new gourmet cheese shop and French grocery from a native of the French Alps, now open in Dogpatch.

This is essentially your last-minute oh-hey-thanks-for-having-me-here’s-a-ridiculously-delicious-cheese-basket superstore. (You always wanted one of those.)

It’s nestled in that huge American Industrial Center warehouse building, the one with Serpentine, Gilberth’s and Dogpatch WineWorks. The inside’s very French: all light-blue and lemon-yellow accents, wicker baskets and a slick marble cheese counter. Basically the Frenchiest place in that particular zip code.

Sampling: highly encouraged. Cheese made with goat’s milk. With sheep’s milk. From Spain, from Italy, from America. It’s all here. Your play: a blue cheese called Guttus, from Antica Fattoria La Parrina—which came in second in an international cheese-of-the-year contest. (We’re pretty sure that’s a Chance card in Monopoly.)

To round out the fromage, you can also pick up charcuterie, truffle butter, escargots and frozen pain du chocolat.

Otherwise known as the ingredients for the world’s weirdest casserole.
