Our Cheese Specialists will be on hand to walk you through the varieties of cheese offered and the many accompaniments to make any cheese party a success.
If you live in the Palm Desert area, be sure to stop by our store on Saturday, October 25 from 9am – 4pm for a live Mammoth Cheddar cheese carving by world-renowned cheese sculptor, Sarah Kaufmann. Sarah “The Cheese Lady” Kaufmann born and raised in Wisconsin. She has a degree in commercial art and worked for the Wisconsin Dairy industry for 16 years. While working as a Creative Director for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB), Sarah was encouraged to carve and her first sculptures were used in trade promotions. She has since moved on to carving cheese full time. Her carvings have included celebrities like Jon Madden and Jay Leno as well as a 300 pound gorilla and a six-foot long aircraft carrier. Sarah also holds the record for the largest cheese sculpture in the Guinness Book of World Records. This carving took Sarah 36 hours and weighed 925 pounds. It consisted of a pig, cow and boy on a roller coaster celebrating the 160th Wisconsin State Fair.
