You are here
Welcome to my new site and my new blog. Those of you who visited my previous site are probably aware I’ve never had a blog before. This is mostly because I figured I could write about cheese in other ways. Then I realized that cheese and its seemingly endless related topics warranted more than just the occasional post. And so this blog.
As you hopefully know by now, my interest, my love, my passion is American cheese.
I’ll be posting the related events and places I go (this means events you can go to too or ones that are so spectacularly interesting that I figure you’ll want to know about them anyway), the cheeses I’m finding, whether American or otherwise (so that you can find and eat them too), the pairings I’m doing (ditto), the cheesy recipes I’m developing, the cheesemakers I’m visiting (including those you can visit too), a little about the issues as they relate to cheese (raw milk anyone?) and the cheese-related projects I’m working on. My hope is that you can travel alongside me on the cheese trail, and we can make discoveries together.
For now, I’ll leave you with this. It’s called Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. It was created by The Grilled Cheese Truck in Los Angeles for the 2011 Grilled Cheese Invitational. And the sandwich was exactly what its title implies – waffles, fried chicken, bacon, and cheese served with sides of maple syrup and spicy country gravy. I hate to admit it, but it was delicious. And just so you don’t think I’m crazy, my fellow judges agreed. It won two trophies.
