Fromage under fire : Why French cheese faces extinction

Fromage under fire : Why French cheese faces extinction | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

When I first arrived in Paris over two years ago, if you had tried to convince me that French cheese was an endangered species on the culinary food chain, I would likely have choked in disbelief on my staple lunch order of Salade de chèvre chaud.

cheese and cabernet, cheese and wine pairing, American cheese month | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
I love wine. I work in wine. I drink wine. I sip wine. I smell wine. I look at it. I dream about it. I love reds. I love pinks. I love whites. Those orange-hued ones are awesome too. But my go-to wine for pairing with cheese? White. No matter how delicious red wine is, white wine is almost always easier to pair with cheese.

Cheese and…Coffee ? | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

If you like cream in your coffee, there’s no reason you can’t pair cheese with a hot cuppa darkness. Over the weekend, I spent a morning with Stumptown‘s official bean queen, Jules Manoogian, and Di Bruno Bros. cheesemonger Ian Peacock. They brewed, I chewed, and now I’m here to share a glimmer of your next brunch divine.

The Downtown Madison Deep-Fried Cheese Curd Challenge

The Downtown Madison Deep-Fried Cheese Curd Challenge | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

Just like Friday fish fries, Jell-O salads, and beer brats, deep-fried cheese curds are uniquely Wisconsin. Once relegated to county fairs, bars, and bowling alleys, the deep-fried delicacy today claims top billing on many an upscale menu. In downtown Madison, dozens of restaurants offer deep-fried cheese curds as an appetizer or side, and some are even transforming the once lowly fair-food into a top-shelf item.

Affairs with Wisconsin Gruyere

Affairs with Wisconsin Gruyere | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago, my friend Mike Geno received an 18-pound wheel of Grand Cru Gruyère from Wisconsin in the mail. The American Cheese Society (ACS) had commissioned him to paint a series of award-winning cheeses, but after he finished the portrait, he was left to scratch his head. What does one do with a whole wheel of Gruyère? Of course, I got a call.

A Champion Cheese Brunch

A Champion Cheese Brunch | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

In America, there are three cheeses everyone wants to taste — they are the winners of this year’s American Cheese Society (ACS) Awards. Of course, no one can find all three at once because they are in such high demand. Only one man in the U.S. has a fridge full of them. That man is Mike Geno. He’s been commissioned to paint them. Because he is a kind soul and a friend of this blog, he invited me over for brunch today to try them.
