Calling America's Sexiest Wedges for American Cheese Month

ChandokaPairing2-1-of-1.jpg

WELL HELLO,

OCTOBER!

The best month of the year! 31 days to celebrate our favorite American cheesemakers.

Happy American Cheese Month Everybody!

In honor of the holiest month of the year, October- American Cheese Month, let’s take a moment to appreciate all that our domestic cheesemakers have done for us. Now, let's exchange the ancient rite of peace and happiness with our neighbors. "Cheese be with you."

And now let's celebrate!

Let’s eat some cheese.

I wrote an entire book about our domestic producers so it's probably obvious that I love our country's dairy craftspeople, but I wanted to take a moment to spotlight some of my favorite producers I've highlighted on "It's Not You, It's Brie."

From Stepladder in California to La Clare in Wisconsin, I've had the lucky opportunity to interview and visit some of the county's best cheesemakers. My favorite part of this? Sharing their beauties with you. Follow the links to learn more about the cheeses, their makers, or what they pair best with.

So in honor of all things good and delicious and cheesy, have a wonderful American Cheese Month!

How will you celebrate? I'm throwing a cheese party for my friends and ordering a cheese plate featuring America's producers at every restaurant I can. It's my duty, after all. ;)
