    Fall Comforts: Cheese Pairings With Simple & Crisp

    While at ACS this summer, I ran into Jane Yuan, entrepreneur extraordinaire and founder of Simple & Crisp. I’ve talked about this company before, since I find their dehydrated fruit crisps a refreshing alternative to crackers and bread. We got talking, and decided to collaborate on a few articles focused on pairings and Jane’s founding […]

    Feeling Domestic And Sprucing Up The Blog

    Bloggy news: First off, Miss Cheesemonger’s 5th birthday is next month! I can’t believe it. I’ve decided to spruce up the blog a lot in preparation for that, including setting up an Amazon Affiliates account. This means that not only can I share with you my favorite books, jams, kitchen tools, or table dressings, I […]

  • Météorite by La Maison Alexis de Portneuf (Québec, cow, pasteurized). I could look at this all day.

    Meteorite From La Maison Alexis de Portneuf

    One of the many benefits of volunteering at the American Cheese Society conference (“ACS” for short) was the treasure trove of cheeses available for volunteers to take with them (You, too, can volunteer at the next one!). With over 1,600 cheeses entered into the ACS competition, there was a lot to go around. I took […]

    Mark Your Calendars: Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Festival on Sept. 27

    Phew, just as soon as I recovered from ACS, I realized there’s another cheese festival I want to share with you! When M. Cheesemonger and I visited Seattle, Washington, late this spring, we discovered some beautiful artisan cheeses and met some fabulous cheese people! During my chat with the Calf & Kid owner Sheri Lavigne, […]

    The American Cheese Society Takes Over Sacramento

    Last week, over 1,000 cheese people from all over descended on Sacramento for the annual American Cheese Society conference (“ACS” for short). I had never been, it’s not far from SF, and my sister has an extra couch, so figured this was my chance! I decided not to attend officially, but rather volunteer so I […]

  • So many goats!

    Visiting Redwood Hill Farm: Goat Play Date!

    Of all the wonderful things there are to love about cheese, goats are among my favorites. Luckily, Redwood Hill Farm in Sebastopol, CA, is nearby so I can visit them and their adorably joyous goats! Not only that, my dear friend Kim Huestis, owner of Boston-area-based Porcelain & Stone, crafter of gorgeous porcelain jewelry, and great […]
