Cheese Underground Screen Shot

Here’s a killer article on cheese Terroir in the Drifless Region of Wiscosnin.  I’ve been to a good deal of these Dairies and Cheese producers, and I have to agree that the area has a taste all its own.  Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese. via Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese. * * *

A Cheese House With Cows Outside

Colonial Cheese 02

Happened to stop in, per my usual whenever I spot a cheese shop while traveling Wisconsin, and found the quant Colonial Cheese House in Wautoma.  Hard to miss what with the beautiful ceramic cows out front.  Of course what I really dug about the place, besides the cheese, was the Cheesehead memorabilia for sale, including … Continue reading

Bobby Nelson Cheese Shop – The Little Shop That Could

Bobby Nelson 02

Kenosha has more than its share of cheese shops, and while the more well known is the Mar’s Cheese Castle, a lesser known but just as unique cheese shop is right up the street, the Bobby Nelson Cheese Shop.  What’s coolest about his place, besides the awesome meats and cheeses, are the paintings the run … Continue reading

Colby From Colby Is The Best Colby

pic03

It was a dreary day when I went to Colby, but it is the birthplace of Colby cheese, so it deserves some props.  Colby is always best when it is Longhorn style (in my opinion).  The town, a quant little village in the middle of the state, was cozy and pleasant, with reminders here and … Continue reading

Genuine Wisconsin Cheese Curds Imported For Rose Bowl

Rose Bowl Curds KARE 11

While imported may be the worst use of the word. since both Claifornia and Wisconin are part of the United States, it does imply that our Wisconsin cheese is so good that it feels as though it should be an import.  Good to see out buddies at Ellsworth getting some national media attention.  Here’s a … Continue reading

Wisconsin Cheese Curds In California

Ellsworth OC 01

Seems as though my old stomping grounds in Orange County (California) is rife with good taste.  I found these Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery cheese curds from Wisconsin in a Sprouts chain (sort of a Whole Foods, but nowhere near the price gouger) of gorcery and health food stores.  They also had Henning’s chipotle cheddar there (Henning’s … Continue reading

If Frank Lloyd Wright Had Designed A Cheese Haus…

Foster Cheese Haus 03

If Frank Lloyd Wright had designed a Cheese Haus it would have been Foster Cheese Haus in Osseo (just south of Eau Claire off of I94).  They have some amazing cool Wisconsin Cheese as well, including bacon infused cheese curds like I’ve not seen anywhere else. Not only do they have great Wisconsin Cheese, but … Continue reading

Recently Discovered 40-Year-Old Wisconsin Cheddar

40 Year Old WI Cheddar

  When Edward Zahn decided in May to close his cheese shop in Oconto, he made a discovery that is going to drive cheese lovers more bonkers than the 15-year-old cheddar released by Hook’s Cheese in Mineral Point in 2009. In the back of his walk-in cooler, Zahn, 73, found several wooden boxes of cheddar … Continue reading

Where Antiques & Cheese Come Together

Tim & Tom 01

Tim and Tom’s Cheese shop is located just outside of Kenosha, right off the freeway a few miles away from Mars Cheese Castle, but it’s a world of difference from the Castle filled with cheese because it also offers up an awesome variety of antiques and unique items for sale.  Lots of collectables, old liscense … Continue reading

If you are ever heading down Interstate 94 towards Chicago, you will see a giant Castle just off the freeway outside of Kenosha, a castle loaded with cheese.  They’ve got an amazing variety of other items as well, and a loung-ish bar for beer and wine to boot.  It’s a pretty cool place and our … Continue reading

Wisconsin Cheese Mart In Milwaukee

Wisconsin Cheese Mart 01

Wisconsin Cheese Mart in Milwaukee (just down the street from Usingers) is the kind of cheese shop that John Cleese would be more than welcomed to visit since they have nearly every kind of cheese he could possibly list off.  Not only that, most of the cheeses here are many of the Wisconsin originals made … Continue reading

The Tipsy Cow In Madison’s Capital Square Is Divine

Tipsy Cow 01

All we can say is, order the cheeseburger lunch special made with, get this, meat, bun, a slab of butter, and Carr Valley 5 Year Cheddar.  That’s all!  If you want onions raw or grilled, they’ll add that too, and the side of pickles is…  Well just end up their and some point in your … Continue reading

West Allis Cheese In The Milwaukee Public Market

West Allis Cheese 03

While we are on the topic of the Milwaukee Public Market (from yesterday’s post) it would be timely to mention the West Allis Cheese Shop inside the market.  They also have  two (or more) other shops in the Milwaukee area, but this was the only one we made it to on our last trip.  Lots … Continue reading

Humbird 02

While driving down I-94 heading to Madison this fall, we saw the giant sign with a mouse and cheese on it and, as we do every time we encounter a Wisconsin cheese shop, we pulled over to check it out.  It was a quaint place with some rather interesting exterior decore, and of course terrific … Continue reading

Fromagination 03

When we visited Fromagination, a specialty cheese shop on Capital Square in Madison, to interview owner Ken Montelone for the documentary, we had no idea that we were in for one of the most unique cheese shops in the entire state of Wisconsin.  Located just across the street from the Capital building, it serves host … Continue reading

While traveling up to Sturgeon Bay on a pleasant fall day (rainy as it was) to check out the landscape and scout for some footage, we came across Renard’s Cheese just a few miles out from Sturgeon Bay.  As we do with every cheese shop we spot along the roads and highways of Wisconsin, we … Continue reading

A short while back our good friend Steve “The Owner” Tate decided we should spend the afternoon just hanging and having some fun, so he took us out to the Sassy Cow Creamery about twenty miles outside of Madison in the lush, gorgeous, and rolling green hills of Southern Wisconsin to a place called Sassy … Continue reading
