In a few weeks im trying to arrange a private tour for me and my wife of a ' cheese cave' in NYC. I saw them do a piece about this on the food network a few months ago, and i thought it would be a cool experience.

I hope they're still doing it because I just registered!
Ile de France makes the best baguettes so I'm sure their
cheeses are as fantabulous as you say!
Thank you, Natalie

Did anyone happed to see any of the videos? I saw one from Philly for a baguette, sliced the long way and then brushed with a mustard vinegrette, topped with sauteed mushrooms,roasted red peppers , carmelized onions, topped with St Albany cheese, it was fantastic looking. We will be making it this weekend.
