AMERICAN CHEESE MONTH 2021

Live on Zoom!

With May being the American Cheese Month I wanted to spend sometime catching up with these cheesemakers and mongers on how they have been since we did our last session in May of 2020.  

Updates coming daily and I will keep posting and setting up the registrations as I get them, along with their fabulous Cheese Boxes!

Before the month of May starts, I will have a kickoff with several cheese makers to talk about the American Cheese movement, both past and present.

Next, on Monday, May 3rd CBS Great Day Live will air a short segment on the American Cheese month that we did the week before.
