Are you curious how Olga Dominguez, Zabar’s cheese maven, creates her spectacular cheese combinations? Have a look at the cheeses in Olga's Champagne Plate Cheese Collection Video. This was designed for any celebration, but is especially wonderful for indulging on Valentine’s Day.
“Champagne means it's time to celebrate: a new home, an everlasting love. We hope your reasons to celebrate never end! Olga Dominguez designed this French cheese plate with celebration, and champagne, in mind. Each cheese is a luscious expression of rich milk and careful aging, and pairs beautifully with your favorite sparkling white. This collection includes earthy Brie de Meaux from Ile-de-France, buttery Delice de Bourgogne from Burgundy, gently spicy Saint Agur double-creme blue and robust Langres, made in Champagne (the region). Pop the cork and enjoy!”
Contains: Brie de Meaux from Ile-de-France, Langres, made in Champagne, Delice de Bourgogne from Burgundy, Saint Agur double-creme blue.

To answer some questions about the C-Cap program and why New Yorkers are so lucky to have such a wonderful program, here is a report the Today show did in 2007 featuring some C-Cap students.
Al Roker's original story is available for viewing in our store Houseware Mezzanine at Zabar's Store. Watch the Today video and in studio cooking demo:
From TODAY March 22, 2007
"In November, we did a series on who we admire and Today host Al Roker chose the C-Cap program. C-Cap stands for Careers through Culinary Arts. Its mission is to provide job opportunities in the food service industry for at-risk, disadvantaged inner city kids through culinary arts education and apprenticeships. Al is such a fan of c-cap that he recently MC'd their annual benefit. Two of the folks honored at the benefit. Michael Romano, chef at the famed New York City restaurant, Union Square cafe and Rachel Lansang, pastry sous chef at Fauchon and a C-Cap graduate, share some decadent recipes:
