Wisconsin, mish-consin… Philadelphia is literally surrounded by cheese country. And we’re not talking Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Local artisan producers in our area have put the area on the map nationally and internationally in the world of cheesemaking. Damon Menapace of Kensington Quarters (and formerly of Marc Vetri’s Osteria and Alla Spina) is returning to COOK for a menu that celebrates all the curds that our countryside has to offer: Birchrun Blue flan with roasted beets, candied pecans, and winter greens (blue Cheese, raw cows milk, Birchrun Hills Farm, Chester Springs, PA); mushroom, egg, and cheese with toasted sourdough and Conabella Cheddar (sharp Cheddar, raw cows milk, Conabella Farm, Elverson, PA); St. Malachi ravioli with parsley butter and black pepper (gouda style, pasteurized cows milk, Farm at Doe Run, Unionville, PA); dry aged pork loin with Elsa Mae, broccoli rabe and Tabasco (taleggio style, pasteurized cows milk, Calkins Creamery, Honesdale, PA); and sourdough apple fritters with goat cheese ice cream and caramel (fresh chèvre, pasteurized goat, Goat Rodeo Farm & Dairy, Allison Park, PA). In addition to the prepared dishes, all cheeses will be available for tasting on their own. Kensington Quarters, located in Philadelphia’s bustling Fishtown neighborhood, is committed to sourcing from dedicated farmers and producers in order to provide patrons with the healthiest, best-tasting food possible, cheese included! Calling all cheese lovers – don’t miss out!
