Meet Robiola di Bosco - A standout example of Lombardy's take on robiola, this salty, savory washed rind square is reminiscent of Taleggio. Thick and pasty in texture, it's got plenty of barnyard notes and a hint of fruit on the finish.

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.

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 😉)

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.

Cabrales (aka the most expensive cheese in the world) is one of the more than forty different artisan cheeses—four under Protected Designation of Origin—produced in Asturias. An impressive number considering the area is smaller than the state of Connecticut.
Want to read more about cheesemaking in the Asturias region? In 2021, culture contributor @monicargoya visited to “Green Spain” to learn about the new generation of young cheesemakers bringing life to an industry with ancient roots.

Meet the most expensive cheese in the world 🌎️
Clocking in at $6,682 per pound, a wheel of Cabrales blue cheese from northern Spain just earned the title of the world’s most expensive cheese after a 2.2 kg wheel was sold at auction for €30,000.
Why spend so much on cheese? The top bidder, restauranteur Iván Suárez, said “the passion for the land” and “recognizing the work of all the cheesemakers” made him buy the cheese. Ohh, and the fact that it won first-place at the Cabrales Cheese Festival had something to do with it too.
