Feast! in Charlottesville, VA
Feast! is a gourmet, locally oriented grocery and marketplace with an awesome deli located in Charlottesville, VA near the campus of the University of Virginia, UVA.
Also, with The Spice Diva and Gearhearts close by, it was a perfect foodie afternoon. The deli had some amazing cheese up for sampling.
They also had a fantastic pâté and a great cheese called Manori, which interestingly enough is a byproduct of the making of feta. Cream is added to the mixture to make it extra creamy – it’s also much less salty than feta and has a sweet nutty taste akin to cheesecake. Some people put honey on it; some people eat it straight and some people put it IN cheesecake because it is so much like cream cheese. I had some drizzled with honey at the deli and it was one of my favorite cheeses I’ve had in a long time. At the deli there was also pimento cheese and hummus for sampling and a fresh made cream cheese which was also quite good.
In conclusion, Feast! was pretty dang awesome. DFTBA
