Gill St. Bernard’s School: The Taste-and-Talk Project



Two dozen students in the Upper School of Gill St. Bernard’s School, Gladstone, spent the days of their annual year-end unit exploring new foods, learning the art and science of tasting, and talking about how to accurately convey their experiences. In this four-part series in The Peasant Wife, the student food critics speak out about flavor as well as what foods they tasted and favored during their wide-ranging week of eating.


Today: Jersey Girl Cheese, with its creamery and farm stand located at Hillcrest Orchard & Dairy in Branchville, Sussex County; a cheese shop in Rockaway; and stalls at many farmers’ markets, is owned and operated by head cheesemaker Sal Pisani. Not yet 30 years old, Pisani makes masterful Italian-style cheeses from the milk of Jersey cows right at Hillcrest’s farm. It’s like Italy’s very, very best, only made in the Garden State – and fresher. Details: – Andy Clurfeld
