But to work out the kinks, Cotter is opening quietly for a few hours on a few days this week and next. Buy cheese and what she terms "an extremely limited selection" from Porter Road Butcher, which itself isn't yet open as it works to perfect its operation as the city's new dedicated butcher shop.
Cotter asks customers to "please bring a healthy supply of patience," while she streamlines her procedures. Being a one-woman temple of cheese is harder than it looks.
Soft opening hours are:
Wednesday, Nov. 16: 5-8 p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 17: 5-8 p.m.
Tuesday, Nov. 22: 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 23: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
