Your cheese horizons are widening, Oak Cliff.
Cheese & Chutney, a startup from husband-and-wife business partners Jeff and Chitra Foster, soft opens today at 1318 W. Davis, in the Tudor revival shopping center that also houses The Book Doctor.
The shop offers an “evolving array of artisan cheese, charcuterie, and, as its name suggests, chutneys and other accompaniments,” according to a media release from the Fosters.
More from the release:
They offer small-farm offerings running the spectrum from American stalwarts like Northern California’s Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog, to Texan award-winners like Veldhuizen’s Texas Gold Cheddar and hometown favorites like Deep Ellum Blue from Dallas’ Mozzarella Company. They also carry top-line cheese knives and tools, as well as exotic wood boards made by Jason Beard, a Houston artist. Accompaniments include a wide and colorful variety of savories and sweets, the centerpiece of which are hand-crafted chocolates created especially for them by the artists at CocoAndré.
The Fosters also plan to add sandwiches, wine and beer eventually.
The shop is open 1-7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. A grand opening party is noon-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20.
