It’s All About The Cheese

At Caseus Fromagerie In New Haven

Jason Sobocinski, owner and cheese expert extraordinaire is also the host of The Big Cheese show on Cooking Channel.  With his unique knowledge and passion he has compiled a wonderful assortment of cheeses from all over the world, offered for sale at his Fromagerie.  And if that is not enough, he took his skills into the kitchen and choreographed a beautiful menu for his Bistro (also in the same building as the Fromagerie)

Last week, we went to dine at Caseus with some good friends.  The meal exceeded our expectations.  It was delicious and creative, old fashioned with a wholesome dash of modern.  The simple menu offers small or large plate choices along with a selection of salads. 

When you come to Caseus, you gotta have cheese, right?  So naturally we started with a cheese board which is selected based on seasonality and peak ripeness of cheeses.  It was wonderfully paired with breads, nuts and preserve.  I highly recommend this as a starter.   On one cheese board you will get the entire picture of what Jason is all about.

French onion soup was one of the best I have ever had – anywhere!  Excellent broth tasting absolutely divine with a secret ingredient:  sherry.  That sherry really created mysterious depths to the flavor profile.  Jason told us that he tries to take this dish off the menu in summertime but its high demand forces him not to.  Yeah!  It’s that good!

Awesome! If you plan to buy some cheese at the Fromagerie - then just know that the shop closes at around 5pm. The restaurant ofcourse is open for dinner and lunch.
