If Russ and I ever leave Cambridge -- and we probably will -- Formaggio Kitchen will be one of the places we are most sorry to leave behind.
Cheeses from around the world (many aged in a cheese cave below the store), cured meats and house-made pates, olive oils, wines, artisanal breads, chocolates and sweets. Truly, it's like you've died and gone to heaven.
Gourmet food doesn't come cheap -- I have a hard time leaving without spending $20-50 (on CHEESE!) -- but as the sign tacked up to the butcher counter says, "Life is too short to eat supermarket cheeses."
