Douglas, I notice that you are a repeat toothpick user. At the Bi-rite these days, they have taken to putting out cheese samples at the most popular time for shoppers. From about 5:30 on, there are delightful little ramekins full of little bites of cheese—midnight moon, piave, vella mezzo, pecorino with truffles, sareanah farmstead, reggiano. the dry cheese section of the bi-rite is the perfect place to end an early evening run. if you are sweaty and bright red in the face, no one else will even come near the cheese samples and you can easily eat the whole little dish of queso iberico, using only one toothpick. and sometimes, in the refrigerated section, they have a little plate of crackers spread with a luscious dollop of Humboldt Fog, a delicious aged goat cheese that while having a creamy texture, is decidedly not a cream cheese.
