A Day at Whole Foods Market with a Certified Cheese Professional

A Day at Whole Foods Market with a Certified Cheese Professional

So last month I got the chance to learn all about cheese from a really cool Certified Cheesemonger named Cody Lincicome at Whole Foods Market (Post Oak Location).  You better believe me when I tell you that I learned more than I could have ever imagine about cheese!  Not only did I learn how to properly choose a cheese but I learned so much historical information on cheese and about the unique laws there are for selling it in each country.  It really brought my love for cheese to a whole new level.

La Condesa in Austin, Texas

I started off my New Year day with brunch at La Condesa in Austin, Texas.  It is such a beautiful restaurant with delicious food and drinks right in the heart of downtown.  The decor is truly amazing...shoutout to the interior design group that they hired because I was in awe.  The place is a piece of art and everywhere you turn, you see these tiny amazing details that piece up together to create an amazing vibe with a modern art feel. 

 

So I started my day off just right by ordering a delicious Bloody Mary...New Year same me LOL.  I love Bloody Mary's and I like to see how different each place prepares it.  This drink was savory and spicy and delicious.  I was tempted to sample some Mezcal, but I had a really long day ahead of me so I had to pass.  

We shared a Seafood Ceviche for an appetizer and enjoyed the beautiful morning light coming in from the windows.  I fell in love with their beautiful giant fiddle leaf fig tree that I captured in several of my photographs...I'm determined to find that tree for myself because it's one of my favorites.  Anyway we finally decided on our brunch entrees and I decided to try the Huevos Condesa.  It was ahhhhmmmmazzzzinnnnnnnngggggg!  It had roasted chicken, poblano peppers, potatoes and fried eggs.....so needless to say my little Mexican heart was very very happy.  It came with tortillas on the side but I had to pass because it was extremely filling.  

Next time I am in town, I'm surely coming back but I hope I come in for dinner so I can get my Mezcal sampling on and so that I can try different options on the menu.  If you are in Austin, you need to stop by....I highly recommend this wonderful establishment.  Thank you for having us!
