Today in Hampden Foodie News

The Wine Source is one of Hampden's gems, and it just gets better all the time. (Except: When--OH GOD!--is that rumored wine bar a-comin'?) Their regular free wine tastings are a hipster/college student/Roland Park lawyer mixing bowl. (You can also sample TWS favorites at Baltimore Shakespeare Festival opening nights, FYI.) TWS's continuing expansion into food is more than welcome, and now. . .

The Wine Source is now making fresh mozzarella! (Thanks to Hampden's favorite foodie for alerting me!) The cheese cave admits that it's still on a learning curve, but fresh-made cheese is an amazing addition to their already well-selected, mighty selection of cheeses for sale.

According to TWS employee I just spoke to, the mozzarella is generally only made on weekends and is ready by early afternoon, but it goes fast!

There also is word that there may be some changes in staffing at the cheese cave coming soon, but that TWS is committed to making the cheese and will resume it ASAP if there are staffing changes.

Get some while tomatoes and basil are still in season! Summer is fading fast, people!

What? What staffing changes? Not the Cheese Guy! He's so nice!

They were vague. A generic "there might be staffing changes" was all I could get out of the guy I talked to, but I'm going a-wine tasting there this weekend. Hawker's gonna dig!
