I love that rat. I really do. Remy is, without a doubt, one of my Disney favorites. I wish their execs would market his character WAY more than they do. (Maybe they don’t want to pit mouse against rat, who knows?) This scene, where he’s doing his best to teach his brother Emile to appreciate food and not just “hork it down” cracks me up every time I see it.
But must you live in the City of Lights to understand, appreciate, and cultivate award-winning cheeses? Clearly, France is not the only country that can produce a fine fromage. The United States can stand up to the best makers out there. And on top of that, Wisconsin is proud to offer “the most ambitious and rigorous advanced training program in the country and the only Master program outside of Europe.”
While October is nearly three-quarters done for 2013 there is still plenty of time to celebrate an annual event: American Cheese Month. No, I don’t mean “American Cheese” as in this stuff:
I mean fine cheeses crafted in America.
I have a handful of friends who love to eat but can’t boil water. Not everyone is a Martha and that’s perfectly fine. If you happen to fall into that category, but want to entertain friends and family, NOTHING could be easier than a wine and cheese party. There are as many resources out there as there are varieties of cheese. (I could spend HOURS on the EatWisconsinCheese website.) You can make things as simple or elaborate as you’d like, as with any other kind of gathering. Cheese, fruit and other accompaniments are beautiful on their own. They don’t require any fussy presentation or preparation. And unless you choose to include a fondue they require NO COOKING. I said “easy” didn’t I?
This American Cheese Month can serve as an introduction to all the amazing selections that are available to you. But don’t stop there! The holiday entertaining season is just a few weeks away. What a fabulous opportunity to say “Cheese, please!”
Bold & brave palette or unadventurous & safe, you can easily find an assortment of delicious dairy offerings that will have you realize that cheese is ALWAYS a Culinary Yes Yes!
