presents…

61 Local and I are embarking on a four part series devoted to seasonal fair, regional wines, and house made cheeses.  The first one up is on Sunday, February 22nd, marking the beginning of the Year of the Goat and Sheep, according to the Chinese calendar.  Although cheese is not a traditional Chinese food, this coming of the New Year marks an excellent time to appreciate all things goat and sheep, while eating a delectable meal.  Both educational and delicious, you are sure to not find anything much like this experience in the five boroughs of NYC. So mark your calendar!  Details below…
