Yes in the middle of Covid – July 2020 we opened a second shop next to our cafe. Now we have Thyme to Taste Cafe & Thyme to Taste Emporium. The original shop is now primarily a cafe, with a focus on great tasting local food, with a couple of rooms and our leafy courtyard available.
The Emporium is the premiere bottle shop in the region, specialising in local and boutique wineries, craft beer, and artisan spirits, we also have one of the best cheese selections in our specialty-built cool room. We also collect a small selection of other gourmet-based food items, once again from small producers.
Drop in and say hi
The Emporium address – 62 Comur St Yass (next door to the cafe) –
The Big Cheese with a new cheese. From Italy, Pecorino Bigio, with Bigio meaning grey and ashy. This ewes milk cheese is matured for 5 months then placed under ash for another 3 months, the ash takes away any moisture and prevents mould. Originally the ash would have been provided from the bakers oven. Another titbit of information is that this was a similar style of cheese that Roman soldiers would have been given. The maturation and ash create a unique sweetness #pecorino #ashcheese #sheepmilkcheese #cometocheesus #thymetotaste #visityassvalley #thebigcheese
Thank you for a fantastic year. Lee-Ann, the team and I, are taking a brief break.
