MARKET SPOTLIGHT

Your neighborhood kombucha

Marin Kombucha founder Brian Igersheim applied his accumulated academic and food-industry expertise to brewing three oak-aged varieties of the drink, now on sale in bottles or on tap in our deli. Brian, who started the company last year, says oak-aging during fermentation “enhances the drink’s unique flavor profile, palatability and beneficial health properties: probiotics, antioxidants and detoxifying organic acids.” The four signature flavors reflect the bounty of local harvests: Original Oak, Apple Juniper, Pinot Sage and Ginger Lemongrass.

Bottles: $4.29 $3.49. On tap: 12 oz., $3.50 $3.00. 16 oz., $4.50 $4.00.

Aged to perfection

As the name suggests, at Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company, everything in the cheese comes from their own 700-acre farm, 35 miles away from Driver’s Market. Bob Giacomini and his four daughters, Karen, Diana, Lynn and Jill, started making the award-winning Original Blue cheese in August 2000, but the family’s journey started in 1938 when Grandfather Waldo moved his family to Point Reyes. Today, the company produces four kinds of gluten-free, all natural cheese:

Original Blue: Sweet, fresh milk with a medium-to-strong punch of blue flavor

Bay Blue: Mild and mellow blue-mold flavor with earthy notes and a salted-caramel finish

Toma: Creamy, buttery flavor with a grassy tang finish

Mozarella: Sweet milky flavor with a light and luscious texture

DRIVER’S INSIGHTS

Jonathan Alexander: The Terroir of Cheese



Anyone’s first encounter with the word terroir almost certainly is in relation to wine. The very word itself carries a certain reverence and respect for the craft that it describes, while simultaneously evoking the image of an all-too-serious sommelier telling you about things like elevation and whether the Rhone had a mild summer that year. But terroir need not be the sole provenance of that expensive bottle of pinot noir; it can also apply to that bottle of grass-grazed milk, or the wheel of raw sheep’s milk cheese at your local market.
Read the full story here.
