There is a cheese revolution taking place in America: a pastoral movement where a spirit is rippling through an already substantial cheesemaking tradition. These new American cheesemakers have a definite entreprenuerial mindset - some have left the fast lane to return to their country roots, others just want to get back to the land and see what nature provides. To look at American cheeses, it is interesting to look at the history of its settlers: along the West Coast many settlers were Italian and Hispanic, while the Midwest was settled by the Germans, Scandinavians, Norwegians, Dutch, Welsh and Cornish. The East Coast on the other hand was mostly settled by British, French, Dutch as well as the Amish, Greeks, Armenians, Eastern Europeans and Italians. When these settlers arrived they brought their cultures with them, including traditions of cheesemaking, and the result is a vast array of styles with influences from all over. From MOSES SLEEPER to ROGUE RIVER BLUE to PLEASANT RIDGE RESERVE, discover the diverse selection of these new American cheeses. Due to the natural difficulties in shipping across the Atlantic, we can import only a selection of American cheeses at certain times of the year.
