Wednesday morning we hit one of my favorite spots in Atlanta, Star Provisions. It is the market in front of the famous Bacchanalia. I love the bakery, the deli and the cheese counter, and the meats are almost look too pretty to eat. This week I picked up three cheeses (Wabash Cannonball, Tallegio and Margie - see pictures below for more info) that did not disappoint as well as some sweet treats for kids.
|This is the Wabash Cannonball, which is an ash-covered goat cheese. I'm a big fan of this style of goat cheese (Selles-sur-cher is my favorite), and the name tugged of at the heartstrings of the Roy Acuff fan in me. The skin is thin. The center dense and crumbly. The name is cool. The taste is spot on!|
|The Tallegio is an Italian cows' milk cheese with a thin skin and a semi-soft interior. I like to eat this one completely by itself - no bread, no crackers.|
|The Margie really showcases the flavors of the grass-fed cows' milk. It has a firm rind and a smooth, creamy center.|
