Made in America

Not subject to the regulations and tradition of Europe, American cheesemakers have developed new flavor profiles and mash-up cheese recipes that can only be called, “American Originals.” So if you’re still hung up on France and Italy, allow artisan cheese authority and James Beard award-winning author Laura Werlin to introduce you to the exciting cheeses coming from the likely and less likely parts of our vast nation. Laura’s patriotism extends to wine pairings too: four wines from her four favorite American winemakers.

    Cheeses of Spain and Portugal

    Iberian cuisine seems to be new again these days, but the cuisine draws on traditions as old and venerable as those of France and Italy. From the Basque and Pyrénées regions in the north and the green mountain ranges of Portugal to the sun-kissed coast of the Mediterranean, Iberian dairy farmers (lecheros in Spanish) have been producing wonderful cow, sheep, and goat’s milk cheeses for centuries, with wine to match. You’ll traverse the mountain tops and drink from the oaken barrels with instructor Juliana Uruburu.
