The Formaggio Kitchen family of stores began in 1978 with a vision of creating a European shopping experience in Cambridge. Today, owners Ihsan and Valerie Gurdal operate four stores: Formaggio Kitchen Cambridge, Formaggio Kitchen Kendall, Formaggio Kitchen South End and Formaggio Kitchen Essex Market.
We travel throughout the US and Europe visiting dairies, cheesemakers and agers of artisan cheese whose products we bring to our stores so that our customers can experience the wonders of these artisan producers. We produce many of our own products in our kitchen and bakery - all from scratch and using time-tested traditional recipes with the best ingredients available. We are particularly proud of our charcuterie program, which has won numerous Good Food Awards, our catering department which makes our much-loved Pimento Cheese and Spiced Pita Chips and our bakery and their housemade granola, cornmeal biscotti and teacakes.
the best commercial fruitcake, but very expensive
If you don't like the usual commercial fruitcakes, you may very well like this one. It contains far less fruit than most other fruitcakes. (I think a bit of candied fruit was added last year--not necessarily a good thing--but the flavor is far better than any others I have had over the years except for ones i make myself.
Unfortunately the price, which had been high in previous years, has increased, so I doubt we can get more than one this holiday season. Our loss may be your gain. Formaggio might be wise to bake these year round, so we can space out our purchases, and because we, like others, are always sad when they disappear until the next holiday season.
