Cheese Sculptor Wows in Des Moines
Sarah Kaufmann, known as “The Cheese Lady,” recently made a splash at an Iowa supermarket, where shoppers watched her chisel local school mascots into an extensive slab of Wisconsin cheese.
Kaufmann chatted with onlookers as she sculpted, avidly sharing her love and expertise for everything cheese. Though Kaufmann may be the easily approachable artist, she has gained nationwide recognition for her cheese-shaping abilities. She holds a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest cheese carving in the world, which she completed at the Wisconsin State Fair in 2011.
