12 Days of Fermented Christmas: Day Six

Continuing on with A Quarter Century's blog countdown to the Twin Cities Food & Wine Experience is another Wisconsin favorite.

Day Six: BelGioioso Cheese
BelGioioso Cheese has been "specializing in all-natural award-winning Italian cheeses for over 20 years."

The family owner/cheese maker is from Italy and everyone knows that Italians make delicious cheese.

And happy cows come from WI, no matter what those snooty Holsteins on those California commercials say.

Having been to Italy and sampled an amazing array of pecorino, I dig the authentic, all-natural product. Cheese tasting - the best idea we ever had in Cagli.

I don't have a favorite memory, specifically, of BelGioioso other than eating and enjoying their delicious products. I look forward to doing the same this year at the food and wine show.

If we find pecorino, I may just camp there for the duration.

There's usually a large island of cheesy heaven at the show. Hopefully they've placed a seating area nearby.
