Yikes! Is this pizza ad warning us of something?

Check out these ideas on serving Queijo Fresco, a Portuguese staple.
Fresh cheeses are rindless, moist and mild products that provide the perfect vehicle for showcasing other bolder flavours. And like other styles such as chèvre, ricotta and buffalo mozzarella, queijo fresco is unripened and needs to be eaten soon after production.
Kiss your bulky tour guides goodbye! This new app designed by Patricia Wells puts the food of Paris in your smartphone. Want to find a great cheese shop near you? No problem!

Another dog-on-sheep attack occurred recently, and this time there were casualties on both sides.
A man has been fined after his two dogs were shot dead by a farmer as they attacked his sheep in the New Forest. Five sheep were attacked by the owner's Collie Cross and Setter and two sheep had to be destroyed. Three more were injured.
This savory meatball recipe utilizes brown Norwegian cheese in the sauce. Another great use for this distinctive cheese!
For Gjetost sauce: Remove as much oil from the pan as possible and blend in butter and flour. Remove from heat and blend in light cream. Add chicken broth, bring to boil, stirring and cooking until thickened. Mix in Gjetost cheese. Turn heat low.
The results are in! Check out this year's winners from the Grilled Cheese Invitational.
Eyebrow-raising ingredients in the Missionary and Kama Sutra categories included quail egg, habanero pepper, SoyRizo, masala, squid ink and octopus. But the real shocker of the day was when the Frickin' Figgin Vegan Sandwich took first place in the Honey Pot (amateur) category. To veteran grilled cheese lover and founder of the GCI Tim Walker, a sandwich winning for sandwich's sake (which happened to be vegan) was "an event horizon at the Grilled Cheese Invitational."
A recent episode of the popular comedy "30 Rock," was taped live, and Kraft managed to sneak into one of the scenes with an old-timey commercial that looked like a spoof. They have the marketing thing on lock:
The episode began with an imaginary, black-and-white NBC sitcom called “The Lovebirds,” modeled on the legendary CBS sitcom “The Honeymooners.” The writers of “30 Rock” made “The Lovebirds” part of what an announcer called “The Kraft Product Placement Comedy Hour, sponsored by Kraft Singles. It’s the cheese that won World War II.”
A Manhattan shop has begun concocting and selling frozen kefir, a fermented milk product recently popular in the United States. Kefir is similar to yogurt, but contains many beneficial bacterias and yeasts.
Their soft serve, called Treat Petite, is refreshing and not as sweet as many brands of frozen yogurt. The store offers six varieties: plain, and five others subtly flavored with fruit purées, including pomegranate and caramelized pineapple. There are also smoothies and concoctions with various toppings, as well as coffee, crepes, waffles and some pastries.
