Dairy of a madman
Capone's Crème de Crème
by Nancy Kalajian
The name may be reminiscent of a sociopathic Chicago gangster, but the taste is
all sweetness and light. For years this luscious cream cheese was available
primarily to chefs and others in the know, who used it as a spread in
delectable sandwiches. But smart consumers can find Capone's Crème de
Crème with garlic and herbs in the refrigerator at Capone Foods in Union
Square. The soft, Boursin-like cheese (with an un-Boursin-like price) is easily
spread on crackers, lavash, or Syrian bread. Cover your creation with a thin
slice of prosciutto (also available at Capone Foods) for added pizzazz.
Crème de Crème is $1.95 for a half-pound and $3.75 for a pound at
Capone Foods, 14 Bow Street, Somerville. Call (617) 629-2296.
