30 Days to a Greener Diet - Day 20
If cheese to you means a bland block of yellow foodlike substance, or Parmesan flecks from a can, you owe it to yourself to dive into the pool of artisan cheese makers.
Were not talking about decorative cheese though a wheel of dairy wonder made with sustainable ingredients and old-world ways is a work of art. Artisanal refers to the method of making the cheese primarily by hand, in small batches, using traditional techniques.
Where to begin? A creamy goat cheese from New Yorks Coach Farm? A sharp cheddar from Oregons Tillamook Cheese company? Or perhaps a taste of the buttery signature cheese from Californias Cowgirl Creamery? Google your state and "artisan cheese maker guild" to find regional member farms and to learn where you can buy their products.
Here is a link to artisanal cheese suppliers to New York Citys Artisanal restaurant.
