Gouda, Bocconcini Or Burrata: This Store Stocks Up On All Kinds Of Gourmet Cheese And Does Pairings Too
What Makes It Awesome
In what’s an office space converted into a partial retail store and workshop space, 10 Cuts of Cheese’s owner Christopher Albuquerque is the cheesiest man we have met. And that’s mainly because his refrigerators that are loaded with cheese from all around the country and world. From mozzarella, feta and cheddar to the fancier burrata, gouda, and halloumi, it’s a haven for anyone who loves cheese. We spotted foreign cheeses such as cheddar with cranberries as well as with fig & honey from UK, manchego from Spain which we took home, Parmesan from Parma, and brie (authentic, yaay!) from France. Local cheese such as Kalari cheese from Jammu & Kashmir and edam from Kodaikanal-based Caroselle Cheese are also stocked.
Lucky for you, Christopher will be around to help you with the cheese profiling and recommend pairings. The store also has food and nibbles that go with cheese, so load up on blue potatoes, turnips, yuca, and sweet potatoes. Plus, dried fruits and berries such as apricots and blueberries, and olive oil, canned fish, pasta, and jams. Simpler pairings such as balsamic vinegar, crackers, crisps, dried fruit, honey, and maple syrup are also available. They have also started stocking up on German-style sausages, bacon, and cold cuts from Arthur’s Food Company. Baguettes, sourdough, ciabatta, and focaccia from Indiranagar’s artisanal bakery Oven Springs are available for you to buy as well.
If your love for cheese goes beyond just eating it, Christopher regularly conducts workshops on cheese making and pairings. Given the fact that you can eat most of your workshop props, we say, sign up for the next one right way. There are chocolate and cheese pairings too with chocolates courtesy Earth Loaf, so be sure to sign up. Before leaving, check out his collection of cookbooks, albeit limited. We spotted Julia Child’s My Life In France to Mita Kapur’s Chillies and Porridge: Writing Food. Anthony Bourdain and Marco Pierre White are also in stock. These are for sale as well, if you need inspiration at home.
You can also order online as their entire inventory is available on their website.
