Darien Cheese Store to hold tasting with Vermont creamery
The Darien Cheese & Fine Food store has collaborated with Parish Hill Creamery in Westminster West, Vermont. Ken and Tori Skovron, together with Peter and Rachel Dixon of Parish Hill Creamery, will be hosting a tasting of the Dixon’s Cheese on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the store located in the Goodwives Shopping Center in Darien, Connecticut.
There will also be seasonal smoked charcuterie as well as apple and pear ciders to pair with the cheeses.
“Peter is an icon in the cheese industry for his approach to the craft and his passion. He handles every aspect himself, which is rare in this industry,” said Ken Skovron, co-proprietor of Darien Cheese & Fine Foods.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Dixons to our store on the 21st and we hope that everyone will come out to taste these original, traditionally crafted cheeses,” he said.
The Darien Cheese Shop was founded in 1967 by Jack Hearn and was part of a larger franchise that originated at the World Fair. At one time, the Cheese Shop had 75 different locations including Greenwich, New Canaan, Ridgefield and Westport. Since purchasing the store in 1986, the Skovrons became the first in the area to offer a selection of imported fresh cheeses, locally sourced foods and artisanal pieces. It is located at 25-10 Old King's Highway North in the Goodwives Shopping Center.
