The Wisconsin Local Foods Journal is getting a cultured makeover for 2014: an entire year of cheese. Authors Joan Peterson and Terese Allen have once again crafted a beautiful, multi-purpose cookbook-calendar filled with lists of what’s in season each month, coupons, profiles of 12 cheeses and Wisconsin cheesemakers and a weekly cheese-filled recipe. How about these for mouthwatering highlights? White cheddar chive soup with popcorn garnish. Smoked trout cheve cheesecake. Pleasant Ridge Reserve and rosemary scalloped potatoes. Strawberry brie blintzes. It’s a cheese-lover’s dream in a desk calendar. The only thing that would make this book better is if real thing fell out of the pages.
