I moved from NJ to Hawaii and regret few things about the move, however, one of the things I miss, is not having Bobolink close to home. According to Anthony Bourdain, in a No Reservations episode, Bobolink is one of the few dairies that has exported cheese to France. They make artisanal cheeses that are allowed to age using natural environmental means. Therefore, the cheeses taste and look slightly different from batch to batch. That is not an error but the design. One of my favorites, the cheddar, is sharp and has a cakey consistency with a slight bloomy rind. Another masterpiece, the Jean-Louis, has a gooey deliciousness that needs to be tasted to be best described. They also offer uncooked and cured meats from open pastured animals that are tended with care, dense non-preserved breads, and seasonal local specialties. The store is the huge ground floor cellar of a charming rustic farm building in Alexandria Twsp., NJ. Some reviewers seem to be put off by the character of that sort of place - but it is farm country through and through. No it's not Shop-Rite, Safe-way, nor Wegman's. But is that where you look for unique cheeses? I love cheese and have sampled local specialty cheeses in countries that include France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Greece. Bobolink is a wonder! The owners also promote education about autism and cheese making internships. It's a delicious adventure that makes you feel good in so many ways.
