Links du Fromage: News & Cheese Loveliness

Pécalou, by Chez LouLou

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.

If you need even more reading, check out  Gordon Edgar’s Cheesemonger book. I highly recommend it. I attended a tasting with Edgar and author Laura Werlin at 18Reasons in San Francisco, and loved the selections he choose to read from his book, and that he introduced the class to Cobb Hill’s Ascutney Mountain. Cool points. Do taste and read.

The first Cheesemonger Invitational rocked the east coast recently, when mongers from San Francisco to New York gathered in Queens and battled cheese wits. They plated, sliced, wrapped, paired, made sexy eyes at the cheese, and professed their love to the dairy world with style galore. Read more here:
