Give mom a cheesy Mother's Day
- Finger Lakes Wine Country, New York – Apparently there’s more than just wine in Finger Lakes Wine Country. There are 13 cheesemakers that “use fresh, farmstead raw milk to make several artisan cheese styles, including European, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, and much more” on their cheese trail.
- Vermont Cheese Trail – Forty-two producers of cheese are on the map for this trail, including Cabot Creamy Cooperative.
- Washington Cheese Country – The artisan cheese scene is rapidly growing in Washington state. This site provides a map of artisan cheese makers and a downloadable Washington Cheese Trail brochure.
- Sonoma Marin Cheese Trail, California – Over a dozen cheese makers are in the trail in Sonoma and Marin counties, “the Normandy of Northern California.” A downloadable PDF map of the trail is available at the site.
Does doing a tasting at several cheese makers in a day sound like a good Mother’s Day activity to you? It does to me. Unfortunately, we don’t have a cheese trail near where I live, so I’ll be on the wine trail this Sunday. I’m not complaining in the least.
