Behind the Scenes at 9th Street
Last week’s highlight: a tour of Di Bruno Bros. on 9th Street with my friend Mike Geno. Here he is looking in the window of this Italian Market shop. His quest? To find new cheeses to paint. My quest: to climb out on the roof for some high-noon sun. We did just that with cheesemonger Ezekial Ferguson. After years of lurking in this old world cheese establishment, I finally got to see the cheese cave, folks. Well, it’s a walk-in. But the cellar and the old safe held some surprises.

For a glimpse of Mike’s cheese portraits, head to Wedge and Fig in Old City, where his show has been extended through April.
