One of my pre-baby jaunts to a restaurant I haven’t tried–A16 in San Francisco, known for their wood-fired pizzas and homemade pastas. More food porn after the click!
In the heart of North Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto lies The Cheeseboard Collective. This is the cheese mecca of the East Bay, and quite possibly the entire Bay Area. Simply entering this shop is a learning experience, one that is bound to be full of tasty samples and cheese “a ha” moments.
That’s right. Cheese “a ha” moments. Oprah doesn’t own the term, and I’m pretty damn sure she’s had some cheese “a ha” moments of her own, judging by the looks of it. I’m not hatin’, I’m just sayin’.
My particular cheese “a ha” moment on this trip was with an olive oil marinated goat cheese. HOT D A MN is all I can say.
My food bestie Matt’s “a ha” moment? A sexy little triple cream he picked up at the shop.
Cheese pron galore and info on the Cheeseboard Collective and it’s sistership, the Cheeseboard Pizza Collective, after the jump.
