Best Food For Pirates

Narragansett Creamery

It couldn't have been all hard-tack and jerky; there was probably some salty cheese thrown into the mix. Pirate vittles may not have been the inspiration for NARRAGANSETT CREAMERY's Pirate Spread, but an inspired cheese spread it is, made from brined feta, sun-dried tomatoes, rosemary, and a pinch of cayenne. It's an artisan cheese, one of the products being turned out in small batches in Rhode Island's very own creamery, begun two years ago when food advocate Louella Hill joined up with Mark Federico, owner of Providence Specialty Products. They started with gouda (Divine Providence), feta, and farmers' cheeses (queso blanco); they've progressed to an award-winning ricotta, a mozzarella, an aged Italian-style Atwells Gold; a cream cheese called Angelito; and the Pirate Spread. Made with local milk, vegetable-based rennet, gentle bacteria, and salt, these cheeses are sold at local farmers' markets, food co-ops, specialty markets, local restaurants, and a handful of CSAs. | Dearborn Street, Providence, 401.272.4944 |
