One of the Tastiest Things in the Universe Just Landed in Strathcona

We’re a pretty satisfied bunch, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t covetous. Sometimes we see things out there that we just must have. This is an archive of those earthly desires. During the holiday season, the Cool Thing We Want column goes into overdrive, so keep checking back for more gift ideas.

One of the most delicious things in the universe just landed at both locations of Les Amis du Fromage.

Our Port soaked stilton is ready for sale starting today. Delicious wheels of Cropwell Bishop British Stilton have been soaking in Taylor’s LBV port for six weeks, and now they are ready for eating. Available at both stores starting today (Kitsiliano after 2pm today).

The cost is $6.95 per 100 gram. ‘Tis the season to go crazy, so go crazy.
