Tenaya Darlington, a St. Joseph’s University English professor who moved to Narberth fifteen years ago from Wisconsin, has completed her mission to try all 350 kinds of cheeses Di Bruno Bros. has to offer, writes Jenn Ladd for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
“My Wisconsin neighbors told me, ‘When you get homesick for cheese, go to this place,’” said Darlington.
The former journalist took this advice seriously and now has not only tried all the available cheeses, but also written a book thanks to the experience, titled Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese: A Guide to Wedges, Recipes, and Pairings.
During the process of tasting and writing, she also began the Madame Fromage blog that has become a forum for cheese fans and makers in the Philadelphia region as well as the entire country.
Most recently, she accepted the job as cheese director at Tria, the wine, beer, and cheese-centric café with several locations in Philadelphia. There, she oversees the rotating 16-cheese selection as well as training the café’s staff on pairings and background.
