Cheesemongers have one of the coolest jobs in the world. What’s a cheesemonger you ask? A Cheesemonger works at a cheese shop and learns everything there is to know about cheese- how it tastes, how it is made, what foods and drinks go well with each cheese- everything and anything to help cheese lovers enjoy the best possible cheese experience. Recently I helped gather in-depth cheese information for Wisconsinmade.com and I discovered how much fun it is to learn about the wonderful world of cheese. I enjoyed playing Cheesemonger so much, I thought I would give my Edible Antics readers a turn!
The information I gathered is for a Cheese Information page which was added to Wisconsinmade.com‘s Cheese Department to make it even cheesier! The new addition includes descriptions of the different cheese varieties, tips for buying and storing cheese, bios of cheesemakers, answers to you frequently asked cheese questions and more. Only one element is missing- our cheese pairings section is completely blank. I look at it as a blank canvas and YOU are holding the paint brush. Comment on this post with YOUR favorite cheese pairings (food or drink) and we will list them on Wisconsinmade.com. The cheese pairings can be fancy and specific like Ader Kase Blue Cheese and a glass of Cabernet, or it can be simple and general like apples and cheddar. You can visit my previous blog post on cheese pairings for more examples, but get creative and don’t be shy, today you’re the Cheesemonger.
Post your favorite cheese pairings below or “Like” Wisconsinmade.com on Facebook where we will be discussing a new cheese each week.
