  • Just a special little something I got to put together for @troybarfoot the other day...I hope it was as good for you as it was for me, buddy! 🍻 😀 🧀
  • Much like this red waxed piece of goodness, as long as I have a safe place to rest and a tasty bite close by, life is all Gouda. Just remember, if you have lactose issues, the young, nutty, mild stuff, aged 2-4 months, featured here is no Gouda for you; let’s be more mature about this and try something aged 1-5 years, for a saltier, fuller more caramel kind of flavor.
  • Late lunch board for one since my wife made a commitment to only eat low carb cookies today...pandemic coping is bizarre. 🧀 🤷🏻‍♂️ 🍪 😂

For The Love Of Cheeses

Often I’m asked, "What is a Certified Cheese Professional?" Like a Sommelier or a Cicerone, my job is to know all that there is about cheese. These are designations of expertise. Sommelier is a professional wine enthusiast; a Cicerone is fluent in all things beer. So as a Certified Cheese Professional, I am a professional cheese head.

Accredited by the American Cheese Society. I am one of 800 certified cheese professionals. Whether it’s a question of a breed of animal, to what cracker is the best vehicle or if your cheese will melt. I am the one to answer these questions.

I have tasted over 1,700 cheeses in my career and live by the compass that is my nose. I have made many friends in the industry and learned a great deal about beer and wine in the process. I love what I do. Promoting one of the world’s favorite foods and telling the story of how it came to you.
