In the event that you’ve always wanted to eat cheese, followed by cheese, with a side order of cheese for dinner (and who among us hasn’t?) today’s your chance! The Chester County Cheese Artisans are teaming up with Sam Jacobson, the new chef at Southwark, to bring you exactly that kind of local cheese menu. Cheesemakers from Shellbark Hollow Farm, Birchrun Hills Farm, and Meadowset Farm & Apiary will be on hand to talk about their goat, cow, and sheep’s milk cheeses, respectively, and the menu features their cheeses and those from three other local producers as well. The prix fixe menu is six courses and will run you $45 per person, but you can also order individual dishes a la carte, in the event that you want to stop in to Southwark (number 11 on this year’s list of the 50 Best Bars in Philadelphia) for a great cocktail and a cheese nibble.
Call 215- 238-1888 for reservations.
