Formaggio Kitchen has been an institution in Cambridge, Massachusetts for over 30 years - a gourmand's paradise doubling as a neighborhood grocer. Our regular customers rely on us for their early morning cups of steaming hot coffee and freshly baked scones, croissants and muffins, often returning in the afternoons for a grilled panino, artisan baguette, chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano, a bottle of wine or a bag of organic salad greens. Evening brings the dinner crowd: devout followers of our chef's creations take home meals such as Niman Ranch veal stew, farm fresh vegetable risotto or a roasted organic chicken. Weekend visitors come to stock up on cheeses, cured meats & baked goods, always leaving with something they've never seen before that is sure to become a new house staple. And then there are the chefs - professional and amateur alike, those in the know are certain we'll have that special ingredient they can't find anywhere else.
Each year finds us traveling to the far reaches of the planet in search of the world's finest artisan products (read about our recent journeys in our Travelogue section) . We believe in the one-herd farmer in Corsica, the tiny storefront baker in Tuscany and the fifth-generation olive grower in Andalusia, each striving to preserve their traditional methods in a world of mass-produced, industrial food. Our shelves are brimming with products made by individual artisans, each as wonderful as the next: honeys from Sardinia & Piedmont sit aside farmhouse jams from Pays Basque & l'Ardeche, while spicy organic tomato sauce from Liguria neighbors briny Brittany fleur de sel. Marble slabs support cuts of cheese artistically arranged each morning into a "wall": a horizontal stretch running from Great Britain and North America, through France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy, more than two hundred varieties in all.
