Welcome to My Blog of Cheese!

I have always loved cheese.  I mean, really-who doesn’t.  So creamy, so fattening, so mysterious.  Alas, my knowledge of cheese was limited to cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan (already grated!) and cheese strings.

My daughter returned from a school trip to France and announced that she could “no longer eat Tex Mex cheese.”  Her eyes had been opened to a new world-an old world, an artisan world of cheese.  In an attempt to track down a slice of Beaufort cheese for her (the kind she fell in love with in France) I discovered that there were hundreds-actually-probably thousands-of cheeses out there.  Seriously.

One could-if one wishes-eat a NEW CHEESE EVERY DAY- for 100 days, and still have more cheeses to discover.

Why couldn’t that someone be me?  Thus, began, with trepidation, but great hunger and fear, my journey into  cheese.  I pledged to try a new cheese every day, and to photograph it and describe it here, starting November 1, 2012.  That’s 100 cheeses, 100 blog posts.

This blog is on hold until further notice. I am no longer reading, nor researching cheese. I leave this as a shrine for my journey.

In the meantime, here’s my new website, please have a visit to the rest of Willow’s world!
