We received an advance copy of the first annual 2011 Portrait of a Wisconsin Artisan Cheesemaker calendar yesterday thanks to Jeanne Carpenter of the popular blog Cheese Underground. It was a pleasant surprise to see Andy Hatch on the cover with half a wheel of Pleasant Ridge Reserve cheese. For those of you who may not know, he is pretty much a rockstar in the cheese world right now plus we like the fact that he lives in our area. The calendar features a cheesemaker for every month, a description of their craft, and some drool inducing pictures of cheese. It’s never to early to start thinking about the holidays. This would make a perfect gift for the cheese lover(s) in your life. Don’t forget to buy some cheese (perhaps one for every month) to go along with it! I know I would love it 🙂
To order, visit the Wisconsin Cheese Originals website, an organization that celebrates Wisconsin artisan cheese (founded by Jeanne). SALE starts in SEPTEMBER for $19.95. A portion of all the calendar proceeds will go toward an annual $2,500 Wisconsin Licensed Cheesemaker Scholarship.
