- Madame Fromage created a Blue Cheese Manifesto this week, and implores Americans to embrace the mold and make our country The Land of Maytag.
- The FDA is looking into its regulations on cheese made from raw milk. The AP reports that stricter regulations wouldn’t just affect small artisan cheese makers. It would also affect the makers of Parmigiano-Reggiano, Gruyere and Roquefort – all are made with raw milk.
- March is a good moth for Cheese Festivals. California’s Artisan Cheese Festival is from March 25-28 in Sonoma County. The Toronto Wine and Cheese Show is from March 18-20 in Ontario. The Oregon Cheese Festival is on March 19 in Central Point.
