Madame Fromage Celebrates the Golden Age of Cheese
October is American Cheese Month, and Madame Fromage has taken a moment to sit back and enjoy the signs of the Golden Age. The Golden Age of Cheese, of course. She's been kind enough to mention culture as one of those signs!
Statistics for quoting: A Vermonter named Jeff Roberts has been keeping tabs on cheese growth in America. According to his records, there are over 400 certified artisan cheesemakers in the U.S. currently, up from 150 in 2000. Shaboom!
Media for your coffee table: New cheeses aren’t just relegated to write-ups in trade magazines; Culture, which debuted in 2009, is the Bon Appetit of cheese — think: recipes, travels, profiles. It’s a great source for discovering the next must-eat morsel.
