As many of you may know, in anticipation of this year's Twin Cities Food & Wine Experience, I just couldn't shut up about a magical island of Wisconsin cheese that always appears at the convention center much like the legend of Brigadoon. Like Brigadoon, the island only shows up once a year, yet while inhabitants of the mythical Scottish townn are not allowed to leave, the visitors to the Wisconsin Cheese Island won't ever want to leave.
It's that epic.
Now, you're probably thinking, "Why, Ms. Quarter, such an extravagant heavenly place couldn't possibly exist!"
To which I post the following photographic proof in reply:
Folks, the entire expanse of what you see (framed by the black pipe and drape) is the realm of the Cheese Island, ruled by Mayor Asiago and General Gorgonzola in a military dictatorship. Subjects of said autocratic government never complain.
Need a closer look? Liking what you see? Let's get down to brass tacks.
I give you: Brass Tacks.
Join Ms. Quarter next year at the food and wine show when the mythical island of Wisconsin cheese is scheduled to make it's next appearance.
