A local cheese blogger—Madame Fromage—calls herself a “digital cheese courtesan,” giving cheese lovers what her forebears gave their own lovers: education and allure.  — WHYY Radio

Tenaya Darlington leads a double life: By day, she’s an Associate Professor, Department of English of Saint Joseph’s University …but by night, she is Madame Fromage, quite possibly the most diligent, astute and enthusiastic cheese blogger in America. — Phoodie

For a final palate-stretching exercise, Darlington displayed 12 pieces of produce on tables and challenged her students to identify each. Philadelphia Inquirer 

She is Philadelphia’s cheese-writer-in-residence and is always on the hunt for a new brie, blue or Boursin.

Madame Fromage designed a four-course tasting menu focused on four styles of cheese. Each course paired a classic French with an American counterpart made in the same style. Tenaya worked with the cheesemongers at DiBruno Brothers to ensure we had the best selections at their peak of ripeness. — Think Brownstone

Her own tagline, “Digital Cheese Courtesan,” pretty much says it all.  — Zagat
