FAVORITE RECIPES AND INGREDIENTS
One of my favorite ingredients is cheese. For me, it’s all about quality artisanal cheese from Wisconsin. They are “The STATE OF CHEESE” because they win more awards for cheese than any other state, region, or country. I use it in my favorite summer recipes, like these Pulled Pork Tacos with queso fresco. I also have a beautiful Chef Salad Cheeseboard which features Wisconsin Asiago, Gouda and Cheddar as well as a Red, White and Blue Fruit Salad that features fontina cheese. Just look for the Proudly Wisconsin Cheese badge on packaging and check out WisconsinCheese.com for complete recipes.
