Products We're Featuring
Not all Parmigiano Reggiano cheeses are the same. We’ve scoured Italy for the best of the best! Thanks to the good work of the Consorzio Parmigiano Reggiano®, founded in 1934, we’ve found 5 excellent cheeses to offer. Read more about the parm project!
The Manistique is our signature Manchester cow’s milk cheese wrapped in cabbage leaves. A very traditional preparation for aging cheese, the cabbage enhances its floral and complex notes and helps break down the cheese to a luscious, dense texture as it ages. The end result is a ridiculously creamy, full-flavored cheese that will steal the spotlight on any table. This cheese is amazing left wrapped and thrown on the grill!

Our Favorite Producers
Prosciutto di Parma can only be produced from Italian-born and bred pigs raised according to the highest standards, on which they are monitored, inspected and traced. The dry, aromatic breezes from the Apennine Mountains impart a delicate, sweet flavor into the ham that keeps you wanting more. Hand selected for the Deli, our Prosciutto di Parma is aged a bit extra than the standard and we carry various ages to appeal to all palates. Ask for a taste, and take home an ounce or two.
Hailing from Iowa, Herb & Kathy Eckhouse’s pork house produces the most amazing cured meats with exceptional quality & flavor. See what all the fuss is about –ask for a taste!
We make mozzarella from cow’s milk curd from BelGioioso every morning. Fresh, milky, sublime! Try it on the #55 and their punchy provolone, aged a minimum of 60 days, on the #26.
From a Single-Estate in Greece, these hand-picked organic olives are plump, sweetly briny and buttery. We also sell pitted Kalamata olives by the pound.
Made only when the cows are grazing in the lush open pastures of Ireland—you really CAN taste the difference in its big creamy flavor and softer texture.
