Piedmont Teams Up with Boxcarr for Four Cheese-Focused Courses

More cheese, please!

The setup for Piedmont‘s July 13 dinner sounded incredible: “sweet and savory featuring Boxcarr Handmade Cheese.” Four cheeses, four courses. And, to top it off, it’s all local! My husband and I claimed a spot on the second floor of the restaurant and met some fascinating fellow diners. We enjoyed the courses: a savory cheesecake with blueberries and barbecue peanuts, broccoli topped with crusty cheese, crab rice and a fun ice cheese-and-cream sundae. The food was good and certainly inspired – we wished there was more of it! I get the healthy vibe of the meal and agree – vegetables should be made more of a star. The night was a net positive. We were enamored by our company, and that crusty broccoli dish still has my mouth watering!
