Fan Photo: Marvelous Montébore

Each week we scan our Facebook and Twitter pages for photos submitted by our fans. For your chance to be featured on our blog and win an issue of the magazine, post a delicious, cheesy image to facebook.com/culturecheesemag or twitter.com/culturecheese tagged with #culturefanphoto.


This week’s fan photo winner is Barbara H., who posted her pretty pic of Montébore, an Italian cheese formed in a unique wedding-cake shape. Montébore was, in fact, used in the 15th-century wedding of Isabella of Aragon, daughter of Alfonso, and Gian Galeazzo Sforza, son of the Duke of Milan. The shape was likely inspired by the tower of castle in the town of the same name.

Congrats,  Barbara! Look for your free issue in the mail. Keep on cheesin’!
