What's Local - Marion Street Cheese

Eat Hard to Find Local Cheese (and more)

Fromage fanatics, let alone locavores clamor greatly for one cheese in particular (leaving aside any general clamor from bootleg real Camembert and that kinda stuff). I'm talking the 2007 American Cheese Society Grand Champion of Cheese; the Midwest's own Raclette from the Leelanau Cheese Company of Michigan. Well, courtesy of a well-traveled source, Marion Street has it now. Rich and creamy with the intensity and complexity of an aged raw milk product. Get there.

Want more cheeses? Today was the day for retailers to poke and prod the wares at the 2008 American Cheese Society shindig in Chicago. I know some folks from Marion went with their wallets open. Check in with them to see what they got.

Big deal... Of course raclette was the grand champion. Is there any way that raclette, the best tasting cheese ever not be voted the best, especially when it is aged?

Ah, I wish I could have some right now....
