I'd take a hunk of cheese over a hunk of chocolate any day. And if it were, for example, Valentine's Day, why a basket full of stinky cheeses would really get me blushing.
The folks at Murray's Cheese feel the same way. So in honor of the day for lovers, they've put together the Love Box: a selection of cheese meant to compliment that bottle of bubbly you've got squirreled away. Included are two French Crottin, nuggets of goat cheese aged in Murray's own caves; a heart-shaped Camembert, bloomy ripe from the Hudson Valley; a rich, triple-creamy Delice de Bourgogne; a vial of dark buckwheat honey; and, for the chocolate lover, a threesome of mini chocolate bars from Barcelona.
The basket is on sale now for $49.99 at Murray's (254 Bleecker Street, between 6th & 7th Avenue), or online.
