Five little letters that ignite the soul. I don’t know what it is about those letters that captures my passions so, but it’s an attraction that I just can’t deny. Zingerman’s Creamery Cheese Shop is the playground of my senses. A symphony of smells, colors, tastes, and textures, a perfect counterpoint to the complexities of everyday life. A deep breath, a sweet repose, and also the place where I work. I don’t know how I got so lucky, but, here I am!

One of the best parts of my job is that I get to taste everything before we decide to offer it. We keep our selection small so what we sell is always what we think is the best. This isn’t to say that other Cheese Shops don’t do the same, but we have to be meticulous in our sourcing and tasting, and we feel that we have the best possible representations of what the world has to offer. If it doesn’t taste great, then what’s the point?

So, here’s a list of the imports we have to offer, as well as the cheeses that we make right here in house.

Imported for your eating pleasure:
Brebis D’Ossau – my new favorite!
Parmigiano Reggiano

We also have dry goods, salamis, and of course, Josh Miner’s soon-to-be-world-famous-if-it’s-not-already Gelato!
