In The Shop - New Goat Milk Popsicles!
Come celebrate National Goat Cheese Month in the Cheese Shop! For the month of August, we'll be featuring some of our favorite goat's milk producers and cheeses. To kick us off, we have a brand new addition just in time for the hottest month of the year: Goat Milk Pops
from All We Need Farm
! Stacy Roussel and her family started their Grade A Dairy in 2015 with some ladies from the herd of close friends (and addicting Cajeta
makers) Blue Heron Farm
. Winners of the 2017 American Dairy Goat Association Product Competition, All We Need's herd of Nubian and Lamancha goats crank out some seriously tasty and tangy goodness. We've currently got 7 flavors to choose from (because honestly, we couldn't choose!) Let us know which is your favorite... Cajeta (goat milk caramel), Cherry Chunk, Peach, Strawberry, Chocolate, Cherry Chunk, and Blueberry. With seven flavors to choose from ranging from Cajeta to Cherry Chunk, these are the perfect refreshing summer treat. Swing by to check out the new freezer in our Cheese Shop and snag some pops!
New Tasting Added: DATE DAYS!
If you're anything like us - whether you're a new parent, parent to toddlers, prefer to be cuddled up in bed by 8pm, or just like to regularly refer to yourself as "young at heart" (regardless of your age), you may have trouble attending some of our evening tastings. That's why we're adding DATE DAYS
to the line-up! This is the same offering as our "Antonelli's Date Night," but you can come when it's still bright out and have the rest of the day left to do as you please. One ticket ($110) is good for 2 people and gets you a shared board of cheeses, a cured meat pairing board, and dessert bites.
You can BYOB (for a small set-up fee) or purchase our suggested pairings from the shop beforehand. We've got upcoming Date Day tasting events on:
Sat 8/10 at noon
Sat 8/24 at noon
Sun 9/15 at 12:30pm
Sat 10/12 at noon
..and more! Click here
for all upcoming listed dates or to book a tasting.

So plan ahead for that perfect event out! (And THANK YOU AUSTIN for continuing to make our events and tastings a success; clearly, we can't do it without you!)

Our Cheese Around Town
Time is running out and you need this burger in your life! Created by Chef Amir Hajimaleki over at District Kitchen & Cocktails
on Anderson Lane for The James Beard Foundation's Blended Burger Project
, this one of a kind creation blends Texas Wagyu beef with oyster mushrooms for the patty, then lays it on a Hawaiian bun with Chef Amir's Japanese Island Sauce, pickled bok choy, sliced cucumber, and Delice de Bourgogne
To say that Dolce Neve
owners Francesca, Leo, and Marco are picky about their Gelato is an understatement! Incorporating domestic cheeses like Fromage Blanc
from Cowgirl Creamery in California and Plain Chevre
from Pure Luck Farm & Dairy in Dripping Springs, TX, Dolce Neve serves between 12 and 18 different flavors at any one time. Need to cool down? Stop by their shop on South 1st St here in Austin or, if you're headed to the coast, check out their Houston location on N Main St!
