  • Victory Cheese Editor’s Pick

    "I'd like to cozy up by my backyard fire pit with a board of these exceptional cheeses from Wisconsin. The selection from Your Maker Direct includes Pleasant Ridge Reserve (America's "winningest" cheese), Deer Creek 7-year-old Cheddar, Marieke Foenogreek Gouda and La Clare's Evalon, paired with Potter's crackers and quince and apple jam. Add sliced apples and pears plus a glass of local cider to complete the autumnal flavor experience!" — Susan Sherrill Axelrod

  • Happy Thanksgiving all! Make sure to go all out today: Eat that extra scoop of stuffing, put on your stretchy pants, and enjoy your pie course with some cheese pairings (more on that via the link in our bio). Cheers! 🥂⁠

    Hearken back to the greenery of summer by topping your favorite pasta dish—and everything else—with this bright and cheerful fava bean and #PecorinoRomanoPDO pesto. Recipe in bio. #sponsored by @3pecorinicheese

    DID YOU KNOW: Pecorino Romano PDO is a hard cheese made with 100% fresh, full-fat sheep’s milk obtained straight from the source: sheep farms comprised of 95% Sarda breed sheep. All herds are bred in a geographical production area limited to the regions of Sardinia, Lazio, and the Grosseto province in Tuscany. The compact cheese's crust is thin with a light ivory to straw-yellow color. The taste is aromatic, and ranges from a slightly sharp table cheese to an intensely sharp grating cheese.

    It’s savory, sweet, refreshing, and juicy—in other words, this grilled fruit salad with #FioreSardoPDO is a fool-proof crowd-pleaser. Plus, it gives fall apples a tasty destination! #sponsored by @3pecorinicheese
    DID YOU KNOW: The name “Fiore Sardo” is said to derive either from the use of a coagulant obtained from a flower (most likely the thistle), or from the use of wooden stamps engraved with a flower that until recent times served to distinguish and decorate the cheese.
