In Queso You Missed It June 3rd

Hello cheese friends and welcome to Sunday! Let me fill you in on the most important and life-altering news stories that happened over the past week. While the rest of world might be fretting about nuclear war and the cancellation of the Roseanne reboot, take a break and feast on these cheesy tidbits. Kick up your feet, draw the curtains, and dive on in. I’m glad you’re here.

Here’s what you might have missed this week:

  • I know you have your summer travel list set in stone by now, but what if I told you that South Korea has a cheese theme park that resembles Switzerland? I know. Game changer.
  • Baetje Farms, an award-winning farmstead cheese business is for sale in Missouri. So if you happen to have $1.5 million lying around and a dream of becoming a goat farmer, you better make some calls, quick.
  • The winner of the Gloucester Cheese Rolling Competition was crowned—but we’re a little disturbed by the fact that they don’t use real cheese for this.
  • The Independent is trying to tell us wine and cheese don’t actually make a good pairing. I feel like I’ve been lied to my whole life. 
  • The Cheese Store of Silver Lake, a  long-standing cheese shop in L.A. just closed its doors. On behalf of all of us at culture, thank you for your service.
  • The British Cheese Awards has crowned a winner, and we bet ewe can’t guess which one took home the cheddar.
  • Because it is the authority on basically everything, a journalist turned to Reddit to discover the most “normal” cheese in our refrigerators. Bet you can guess which was number one.
  • In other news, the USA’s favorite cheeses are Cheddar. Mozzarella. American. Um, yawn. Come on America! Live a little!
  • I literally can’t think of anything better than eating Vermont Cheddar Mashed Potatoes for every meal for the rest of my life.
