There were many highlights at last month’s Washington DC Wine and Food Festival (like pretty much all of the wine and all of the food) but I wanted to mention a real stand-out:

The igourmet table was featured in the grand cru wine lounge, so if you had general admission tickets you may have missed it. The good news is that you’re just a few clicks away from their web site. It's is a great source of gourmet gifts, specialty foods and my favorite, cheeses.

My favorite item on the site? Boschetto al Tartufo Bianchetto- a mild cheese, featuring a blend of sheep’s milk, cow’s milk and shavings of white truffle. In my humble opinion, this is the way truffles were meant to be showcased- delicately. I’ve got a hunk of this beautiful cheese in my fridge and I’m waiting for the chance to share it with friends. I think it will make a great addition to my standard cheese plate.

My next purchase from Fennel pollen. I’m dying to make Earthbound Farm’s Red Wine Risotto with Fennel and Sausage.

"Waiting to share it with friends"

Does that include random DC bloggers who you've never before met in your entire life but who would love to eat some of your cheese?
