What are you doing to send off the season?
I spent my morning last week at Whole Foods exploring the last gems of this summer's harvests. The heirloom tomatoes were insanely beautiful and bright, almost tie-dye in color. I walked over to the cheese section in search of that buttery, slice-able feta that photographs well and doesn't crumble. The "cheese dude" was extremely helpful, allowing me to try seven different types in the store before making a final decision. We agreed that Pure Luck farms had the best feta to offer. My friends also agreed at our Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) hors d'oeuvres dinner!
