Celebrating American Cheese Makers
|photo source: WFM blog|
My favorites and a few new ones we tried!
Haystack Mountain Applewood Smoked Chèvre is a local cheese, we've been buying for years. I love all of the Haystack Mountain's Chèvres. (goat)
Humbolt Fog by Cypress Grove, produced in Arcata, California. (goat) We've loved this cheese for years and have a special connection to Arcata, so are bellies are extra content when we eat it!
Kite Hill artisanal nut based cheeses. Great to add to a party platter for guests that have dietary restrictions!
Point Reyes Blue Cheese (cow) from California, you always need a blue cheese to bring a well rounded experience to a cheese plate! Zing! We also love Rogue Creamery from Oregon!
We always have a cheddar on our plate as well, but I urge you to talk to someone in the cheese department of your local Whole Foods Market and try a new cheddar! Venture out.
Cathy Strange, @WFMcheese is the global cheese buyer for Whole Foods Market and I love following her on twitter!
