Whole Foods celebrates American Artisanal Cheese

Whole Foods Markets is celebrating American Artisanal Cheeses this month throughout their chain. Each store will feature a selection of artisanal cheeses made in the USA. Selections will vary based on the region a particular store is located in, but you can check the Whole Foods website to find your local store, and get more information about the event, and the planned selections.

Our local store, in Coral Gables, is going all out, featuring a great lineup of cheeses from some of my favorite producers, along with a nice selection of honey from Savannah Bee Company - including one or two made specifically to pair with cheese. I stopped by the store today, and picked up a list of what they are featuring, along with a few samples. I will be tasting and reviewing most of these cheeses throughout the month.

    I think you mean Rogue Creamery, not Rouge. I make the same mistake (in reverse and on purpose) when referring to Sarah Palin's book ("Going Rouge" should have been its title!)
