Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Laurel Valley Creamery’s Cloverton

Laurel Valley’s Cloverton cheese has long been a local favorite in the restaurant scene. You might find it in a butternut squash sandwich at Little Eater. Or in an ice cream flavor at Jeni’s.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Mrs. Turbo’s

Mrs. Turbo’s original location is tucked away in an eclectic building complex in Gahanna. It’s a sweet bakery boutique. Behind the counter, shelves are stocked with displays of attractive cookie concoctions that a clerk will help you select.  It’s there that the ultimate Buckeye Brownie can be found.

A house recommendation called Black Swamp Gouda fairly jumped into the cart. It seemed seasonally appropriate, given that the swampy summer weather is now upon us.  But this was […]
