Because the world of cheese is wide and vast and I can’t possibly meet all your dairy needs, here are some of my favorite Links du Fromage this month. Feel free to leave links to your own favorites that I missed in this post’s comment section. I’m writing this on very little caffeine.
If you need even more reading, check out Sasha Davies’s new book called The Guide to West Coast Cheese: More than 300 Cheeses Handcrafted in California, Oregon, and Washington. I highly recommend it. Davies is a cheesemonger and a very active board member on the American Cheese Society. She knows west coast cheese like Ruth Reichel knows food adjectives.
Coverage on the Estrella-FDA recall and controversy:
Recall News Roundup and Fundraising Update for Estrella Family Creamery. Thank you, Tami Parr for your excellent coverage on this topic.
Cheesemakers React to Recent Safety News. Tami Parr, once again, asks cheesemakers how the recent raw-milk raids have affected their craft and life. Essential reading.
