While traveling through D.M. I stopped here today to treat myself and now by coincidence, I turned on Iowa Public TV tonight and found the re-run of the show, Iowa Ingredient, highlighting this wonderful shop and their chef! The shop's selection of cheese is exceptional...after trying many different kinds I decided on a French Gruyere and Flory's Truckle (which I didn't know was from Van Buren County Iowa's own Milton Creamery until I saw the label! I love the Milton Creamery and their Prairie Breeze cheese). The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Visiting The Cheese Shop is a must when I am in Des Moines. After you find wonderful cheeses, visit the Vom Fass and La Mie Bakery just a few doors down and get specialty vinegars/oils/spirits and French breads, etc. with which to enjoy with your cheese. All places are easy to find, there is parking in the back and you won't be sorry...the unassuming building right off of I-235 on 42nd street is host to a flavorful and sophisticated trio of specialty culinary shops in Des Moines!
