Though one doesn't need a reason to celebrate the western world's favorite dairy product, today is in fact National Cheese Day. A day to eat all the cheese!
Cheese is something of an unusual product: the fermented milk of cows (and buffalo, goats and sheep) that's curdled and just brimming with bacteria. Delicious, nutritious bacteria!
Weird though it may technically be, cheese is an absolute delight, in all its many forms. Dairies are something of a mini-growth industry at the moment, and California has become home to some excellent varieties and brands of local cheese. Here are some of our favorites. Let us know about yours in the comments!
