Find Cheese Near You with California Cheese App
Technology is a beautiful thing—especially when it can help you figure out how far away you are from the closest artisanal cheese shop. The new iPhone app California Cheese Trail gives you all the tools you’ll ever need to explore the California cheese scene (besides your taste buds).
There’s an alphabetical listing of 150 important California cheeses that includes a brief description and some serving and pairing notes. Cypress Grove’s Purple Haze is an “unexpected marriage of lavender and wild fennel pollen. Great stuffed in medjool dates, with honey, fresh fruit, a light wheat beer or your favorite Sauvignon Blanc.”The app also includes a section on driving tours that will allow you to visit cheesemakers on the Central Coast, in the Central Valley, Marin County, Sonoma County and the North Coast, and gives information for which dairies hold regular tours and tastings.
