  1. “For the Love of Cheese!”


    Tonda HeadshotThere aren’t many people who sign their emails and letters, “For the love of cheese!” That’s why we are thrilled to announce that one of the most passionate cheesemongers in town is headed to East End Market! Tonda Corrente is the cheese lady, and she will be opening the appropriately named La Femme Du Fromage in just a couple of months.

    Tonda is a self-taught Chef and the Culinary Creator/Owner of Tonda’s Kitchen, a catering company committed to local and organic products. Her passion for outstanding food, great atmosphere and fine wines ultimately led her to an undeniable interest in artisan cheeses. Tonda has worked all over Central Florida hosting cheese pairing classes at venues such as The Wine Room, Citrus Restaurant, Windermere Country Club, OLV Wine Bar and Bistro, The Imperial at Washburn Imports and the nationally recognized beer parlor, Redlight Redlight. PastedGraphic-1

    With all of her experience, Tonda explains, “I have come across so many outstanding cheeses in my years hosting pairing classes. Now, I can have a spot to allow people to come to me! Unlike the corner to corner specialty shops that can be found in every metropolitan city, there hasn’t been a cheese shop dedicated to artisan and farmstead cheeses here in Orlando. It’s time to change that!”

    Find out why la femme is so fascinated with fromage at one of Tonda’s cheese pairing classes, or try some of her recipes or pairings at home. Then, be sure to come learn more at her shop around June!

    The Winter Park YMCA and East End Market are partnering to help you commit to getting fit by making local groceries more convenient to bring home! Every Tuesday from 9am – Noon, we will set up a mini-market at the YMCA to showcase our merchants’ products. From produce and organic juices to provisions and fresh-cut flowers, you’ll be able to find it there!

    Moreover, you’ll get to meet some of the talented merchants coming to East End Market and learn more about their products and how to prepare them at home. So, lace up and race down to the YMCA every Thursday morning to stock up on some fresh goods, and squeeze in some time at the gym!
