Artisan Cheese Gallery
There once was a time where gourmet cheeses were only set out for special occasions or included in a cellophane-sealed gift basket containing peculiar meat products and water crackers. But now, as the American palate becomes more accustomed to gastronomy and artisan cuisine, gourmet cheese has become not only the preferred but the norm. Whipped, creamy, cubed, melted or fried, one thing is for sure, cheese makes everything better. Jan. 20 is National Cheese Day, so check out these five cheese stores for the best selections.
