Welcome to the new Di Bruno Bros. blog, “The Queso Philes”. This is a forum for us to discuss what we know best…EATING. Food is the general topic, but there is a marked emphasis on cheese and all the gastronomic delicacies associated with cheese.
We know the majority of our offerings are new and exotic to some of you. It is therefore our goal to help you enjoy cheeses and the foods that compliment them. We consider ourselves culinary pioneers. Because of our understanding and appreciation of culinary traditions around the world, we are able to be inventive with our pairings without abandoning a cheese’s heritage. Over the last seven decades, we have developed special relationships with artisans throughout Europe. Subsequently, we have the ability to send our specialists to Italy, France, Spain, and the U.K. to work on farms and learn more about the products we import directly.
About 15 years ago I started a premise for a club called the “B.E.C.” or “Big Eaters Club”. This was when I was much younger and could afford to be gluttonous. The B.E.C has become something of legend – events that we talk and laugh about for years. We eat, and eat, and eat some more, frequently ordering entire menus. Maybe you have some great, over-indulgent stories or pairings that you are fond of, like the ones we are going to share with you. We would also like to hear about your food-focused trips.
The 9th Street cheese store has always been driven by our casual but sincere customer service. Through this blog, we intend to increase consumer relations and offer our unique brand of customer service to a much broader audience.
