Cheesemonger Q+A: Steven Merkle

Favorite cheesy dish? The many variations of Mac and Cheese.

Wine or Beer? Wine

Cow, Sheep or Goat? Sheep; Rich, buttery, and nutty. Yum

Desert Island Cheese?  It would have to be a hard cheese that can keep longer then most and keep me nourished until the boats arrive rescue me. I’d take Parmigiano Reggiano.

If I were a cheese I’d be… An aged Gouda.

Dream trip? Ireland, to be able to travel the beautiful countryside would be life changing.

Favorite guilty pleasure? Retro video gaming

Favorite non-cheese product at Marché? Honey Butter! It’s name says it all. 

Haiku: Sitting in my frig, Calling out to me always, Can’t fight it anymore

Most interesting thing I’ve learned at Marché… Everyday there are new discoveries: from all the history around cheese making to the artistry and nuances that is cheese making today.
