Cheese (and Wine) Club of the Month- Now Ships from California!

CheeseoftheMonthClub1 (1 of 1) This month, the "It's Not You, It's Brie" cheese club of the month heads west. That's right, the cheese of the month club will now ship from my home state of California. Why the cheese move, you ask? Two reasons. It lets me access artisan cheese that I can only send from California, and, it'll help me lower the cost. A lot. Shipping to my California friends will also be a lot more wallet-friendly, too. Plus,… I'm also adding on wine option for cheese and wine pairing fans.

If you think you might know a cheese lover who would appreciate the club for their holiday gift, please read on for club details. If the cheese lover is you, and you don't care about the holidays except for increased cookie supply at the office, I feel you, cookie lover. You can read on, too.

As always, feel free to email me at if you have any questions.

The Cheese Clubs

Every month, I'll pick three of my favorite artisan cheeses from around the world for you. One of my selections will be as ripe and ready as soft heirloom tomatoes in late July, and the other two will hold happy in a fridge for a couple weeks. I'll ship the cheese, my descriptions written in the lively style of my book and articles for LA Times and NPR from my favorite wine shop and cheese bar (Solano Cellars) to your home. After the club is shipped, members will also receive an email with one of my original recipes for one of the cheeses in the club, accompanied by photographs like those in this newsletter. This club could be the most delicious thing you’ve found greeting you once a month on your front porch… ever. See the pic of a recent recipe on top.
