A Few Cheese-y Links

In honor of National Cheese Lovers Day (which, let's be honest, doesn't really need to be a holiday), here are a few links dedicated to that wonderful category of food:

  • This week, Pastoral is hosting "Raclette parties," offering some of the "mild cheese that has flavors of sweet milk and grasses with a slightly sour rind" that's best when melted and then scraped onto a dish or a plate. Friday, 4:30-6:30pm at the French Market (131 N. Clinton St) and Lake Street (53 E. Lake St.) locations; Saturday, 1-4pm at the Broadway store (2945 N. Broadway St.).
  • The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board has launched its second annual 30 Days, 30 Ways with Macaroni & Cheese Blog. Today, Day 1: Macaroni and Blue Cheese with Figs and Rosemary.
  • But if you don't want to support the state of Wisconsin this weekend, for whatever reason, Marion Street Cheese Market in Oak Park (100 S. Marion Street) is right there with you: you can order any of their cheese flights for brunch this Sunday, except their Wisconsin cheese flight.

When Brewers and Chefs Meet: A Love Story

By Brandy Gonsoulin

Jesse Valenciana knew what he wanted his mole-inspired stout to taste like, but he was a cook and home brewer, not a professional brewmaster. The co-founder of ManBQue, the local men's grilling and social club, and recent author needed a...
