    This is the content we live for. Thank you to whoever is running the @patriots social media account! #cheesegoals

    Celebrate Oktoberfest this year with authentic Bavarian specialty cheeses like Cambozola and Rougette. Both cheeses feature the silky texture of triple cream brie with their own unique twists: Cambozola has exquisitely delicate blue veining throughout while Rougette Bavarian Red has a gorgeous washed rind and a buttery flavor.

    Both cheese are made from sweet alpine milk sourced from regional farms in Bavaria, Germany for a truly authentic taste of Oktoberfest. Prost!

    Tonight, @chelseamarketny will transform into a cheese lovers dream in honor of cheese visionary Anne Saxelby. The event is in support of the @annesaxelbylegacyfund which provides fully-funded month-long internships to young adults interested in artisan food production.

    Wonder what it’s like to be an ASLF intern? We chatted with Carrie (aka @justiceofthecheese ) to learn about their time making cheese @fireflycheese.

    As a cheesemonger, this was Carries first opportunity to actually make cheese. “It was a transformational journey going into the make room and taking the cheese through its life process,” they said.

    Loading Merry Goat Round Brie onto the packaging machine!
    Seeing all aspects of cheese making while on my @annesaxelbylegacyfund internship has been so fulfilling and my brain is exploding with knowledge. From learning about the make to affinage to driving a tractor. This first week has been outstanding.
    Are y’all ready for week 2?👀👀👀

    An advertisement featuring artisan cheeses has been banned by London’s transport network because it was deemed “unhealthy.”⁠

    @thecheesegeekuk ad was blocked because it did not comply with the TfL's advertising policy. TfL said it “uses the Food Standards Agency’s model to define foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt”⁠

    While we understand the need to promote healthy habits and remove “unhealthy” messaging, we turophiles know that cheese can be—and in our case, is—part of a healthy diet. Cheese is high in protein, vitamins, and calcium, not to mention it’s a whole food with minimal processing and has been shown to increase gut health.⁠

    So, what do you think? Should this ad have been banned? (We think we already know your answer 😉)⁠

    Open call for pitches! ⁠

    Culture is on the hunt for fresh stories for 2024. If you've got a great idea for a cheese-related story we want to hear about it! ⁠

    Pitches usually come from writers, but they also are sent by people who are on the producing/sales end of things: cheesemakers, consultants, retail sales managers, publicists. It doesn’t really matter who sends in a pitch, so don’t be shy; if it’s a great idea, we’ll be sure to follow up on it.⁠

    This week's headline (and head-scratching) cheese news comes out of Italy. The Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium announced it is embedding the 90-pound wheels with edible microchips the size of a grain of salt in an effort to cut down on counterfeit cheese.⁠

    And if you're worried about ingesting a microchip—which is totally possible—p-Chip CTO told the Wall Street Journal he ate one with no adverse effects...⁠

    What do you think about this story? ⁠

    New cheese alert! @laclarecreamery has two bold new flavors: Chili Lime and Mediterranean.

    At LaClare Creamery it all begins with milk. All of the milk they use is sourced from dairies within 10 miles of the creamery, and quick and careful handling allows the cheeses’ signature clean flavor and freshness to flourish.

    Chill out with a zesty Watermelon Agua Fresca and sweet and spicy Chili Lime Goat Cheese, or savor the rich flavors of the Mediterranean with Goat Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers🌶.

    Get the recipes below 👇

    Watermelon Agua Fresca
    1/2 large watermelon, or one personal cut into chunks
    1 cup lime juice
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup simple syrup
    Optional 1/4 cup tequila
    Blend ingredients. Pour into sugar and chilli rimmed glasses.

    Mediterranean Goat Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers
    Cut peppers in half and drizzle with oil and salt.
