Ten Must-Try Wisconsin Cheeses
Twenty five percent of all American cheese comes from Wisconsin, so it may be a bit intimidating when trying to decide which block, ball, or spread is worthy to take home from your local cheese shop. Obviously, we say try them all, but you have to begin somewhere. Serious Eats offers these ten cheese's from Wisconsinites to get you started.
The cheese scene in Wisconsin is very interesting; you have just about every type of cheese maker represented from the old-school guys like Joseph Widmer, who has been making a couple kinds of cheese in his family for three generations. On the other hand you have large factories like Roth Käse that produce many distinct varieties that cater to a variety markets. No wonder Wisconsinites are called cheeseheads, right?
