See what I did there? Lol.
Did you know the average American eats 27 pounds of cheese per year, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest? That’s like … 553 squares of the processed squares.
I’m a BIG cheesehead. And I’m not referring to the yellow, processed, sandwich singles nor the blocks of processed cheese that seem to last an eternity.
I’m talking about the beautiful, artisanal, local cheeses that are increasingly being created right here in the United States. And possibly even in your hometown.
October is National Cheese Month in our great nation. American Cheese Month is a celebration of North America’s delicious and diverse cheeses, and the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers, cheesemongers, and the chefs who bring them to your table. And at Whole Foods – (who I am an ambassador for) – you can find some of THE TOP cheesemongers in the world.
