Yesterday was National Mac and Cheese Day. Why a day celebrating a rich comfort food falls in the hottest summer month isn’t relevant. Don’t worry if you missed this holiday: we officially declare July to be Mac and Cheese Month (and here are some recipes to celebrate).
Here’s what else you might have missed this week in cheese news:
- Speaking of Mac and Cheese Day, Pringles just released a new mac and cheese flavor. Will you try them?
- The prices of imported European cheeses might soon rise, and it’s easy to blame them on Trump’s tariffs. However, the reality is more nuanced.
- Madison’s local baseball team temporarily changed their name to the “Wisconsin Cheese Curds.”
- Weird cheese pairings are always fun (like this cheese and junk food feature), but for a true summer vibe, you should consider watermelon and goat cheese.
- A refugee family from Syria that relocated to the UK had a difficult time finding jobs. So they started a cheese production company.
- We all know about the 1250 pound cheddar wheel that was a wedding present to Queen Victoria, but what about the 1325 pound wedge gifted to Thomas Jefferson?
