Ginger Man Cheese

Behold the power of cheese -- and horseradish.

We're big fans of the cheese here at AOA. Cheddar, stilton, brie, a good chevre-- we really can't get enough of the stuff. Ask the staff cardiologist.

But if we had to choose our cheese of choice -- the one cheese we could have if (heaven forfend) we could only have one -- it would be the spreadable horseradish cheese at The Ginger Man.

Ginger Man cheese (yes, that's its name) is the restaurant's signature blend of provolone, cheddar and Monterey jack, with just a touch of horseradish. Not enough to make your eyes water, just enough for flavor-- with a little bit of a kick at the end.

It's one of the options available with their fruit and cheese board. For $16 ($19 for the large) you get to choose three cheeses from the menu. It comes with a variety of fruits, crackers, breads and crispy, seeded flat bread. Order it with extra flat bread. You're only going to ask for more later.

Even the small fruit and cheese board can be shared with a group of four or five as an appetizer. Now, we're all about variety, but if you're sharing with a big group, consider making the Ginger Man cheese two of your three cheese options. It'll probably be the first one to disappear.

If you need more, you can also get the Ginger Man cheese as the topping on their Kobe burgers.

Top it off with a chocolate fondue for dessert and maybe you can get them to throw in a free angioplasty.

Yum! Thanks for the rec, AoA - the cheese looks scrumptious!

The cheese board is one of my favorite things about Gingerman, and the Gingerman cheese is a must in that collection. Reading your post makes me want it -- now!

What about the Ginger Man white truffle and asiago fondue? My entire muffin top is a tribute to that irresistable pot of melted cheese.

they have something similar at avenue a too. no surprise there considering the chef used to be the chef at the ginger man.

This will make Albany into a place that many of us don't want to live in and came here to get away from: Big buildings, heavy traffic, congestion, noise, and parking shortages are really not what we or what people seeking to raise families and considering moving to our area want.
