It’s December 15th, which means ten days until Christmas (it also means Psych: the Musical is on tonight at 9pm on the USA Network, but that’s a whole different kind of cheese and I digress) so shopping for that cheese lover just kicked in to overdrive. Have no fear, because The House Mouse is here with Cheesy Gift Guide #3 which has some pretty cool gadgets. As most readers know, I prefer to shop local, keeping dollars within the community, however time is of the essence so I will be including prices and links here to sites that have expedited shipping, although I make no promises for holiday miracles. Should timing become an issue, I suggest a House Mouse tradition of placing a picture of the gift inside a box and then putting that box inside another box and so on and so on and so on.

https://i2.wp.com/www.tourdefrancenyc.com/content/images/events/500/fc7985a7-1cb1-480e-a642-510288c7a234.jpg

It’s that time of year, New Yorkers! The Stinky Cheese Festival is in full funk so get out there and smell the cheesy goodness! The Tour de France NYC restaurant group, nine of the Big Apple’s finest eateries, has put aside the mild and is showing off the wild that the cheese the French have to offer. Twenty of the funkiest fromages of France will be incorporated into specialty menus from now until February 25th. The Mouse wishes we could be there to take in the sweet and stinky pleasures of Raclette, Stilton, Epoisses, and Gorgonzola. Any House Mouse fans who find themselves in New York and attend this event, please keep in touch and let us know the faves and the just plain funky.

Third Annual Stinky Cheese Festival

Attention all stinky cheese lovers! If you happen to be in New York City over the next four days, be sure to check out the Third Annual Stinky Cheese Festival running now until March 12th. Visit one of eight restaurants featuring variations of the same three-course meal consisting of an appetizer of Raclette De Fromage,  Chicken Cordon Bleu for the main course  and dessert – Poached Pear with Gorgonzola.

In addition to the pre-fix menu, the festival will be showcasing over 20 kinds of funky fromage from Epoisses to my beloved Stinking Bishop.

For more information, check out the Tour De France NYC website.
