Our Cottonseed won third place in the Soft-Ripened Cheese… Read more »

Boulted Bread

When we’re in Durham, we get our bread and pastry fix via Loaf, but these days we’re often running all over the place. Samantha recently had the opportunity to visit Boulted Bread in downtown Raleigh during one of her cheese deliveries, and totally fell in love with their beautiful, old-world-style baked goods. We appreciate the fact that… Read more »

Here are some photo highlights from our visit. Beautiful meat and cheese selection at the Greene Grape… Read more »
