Wisconsin Dreamer’s Cheese Board

WI Cheese Board

Last week, I worked on designing a Wisconsin cheese board for Di Bruno Bros. as part of the store’s new heartland promotion. I selected four favorites from my home state — no easy task — and they’re now available online as the Dairy Dreamer’s Cheese Wisconsin Cheese Board.

I’m so proud of this collaboration! I’ve lived in Philadelphia for almost ten years now, and this is the first time I’ve seen a giant selection of Wisconsin cheeses on the East Coast. Di Bruno Bros. recently began carrying 40 cheeses from Wisconsin after the company’s team leaders took a trip to the Midwest. They must have been treated to a lot of good beer. And cheese. Of course.

This board includes…

Marieke Gouda with Fenugreek  – A young Gouda with beautiful brown butter notes, flecked with nutty tasting fenugreek seeds. Wonderful with apricots and almonds.

Little Darling – Rustic and bright with a horseradish-y finish, this cheese is Wisconsin’s take on a clothbound Cheddar. It loves honey, mustard, pickles, and a pint of Fuller’s ESB.

Billy Blue – An unusual goat blue — creamy and piquant. Great with honey, figs, or cherry preserves. I love to serve this with dark chocolate and dates. It was also the first cheese I ever wrote about on my blog.

Widmer’s Cheddar – Buttery, biscuit-crumbly, and sharp! Break out the pretzels and beer.

You can read more about these cheeses on my recent post for the Di Bruno blog. Here’s hoping you enjoy this special assortment! It showcases Wisconsin’s wide range of cheeses and its fantastic community of makers.
