The woman who opened The Calf & Kid in Melrose Market three years ago is raising money to open Seattle's first full-service cheese bar in Ballard. From the Kickstarter campaign launched yesterday:
The concept is simple: we select the best cheeses from all around the world and from right here in the Pacific Northwest, then we pair them perfectly with beer, wine, and spirits. We showcase seasonal cheeses in fun and unique ways, from simple Parmesean crisps to breathtaking mac n cheese made exclusively with the best fresh pasta around.
Sheri LaVigne says she's got what she needs for a strong start, but hopes to raise an additional $45,000 to help pay for equipment, furniture and construction on a new space.
