This week on Cutting the Curd, host Greg Blais is talking cheese hacks! Similar to the popular life hacks, which solve everyday problems using everyday items in an unconventional way, Greg and guest Nadjeeb Chouaf of Flora Artisanal Cheese in Charlottesville, VA chat about shortcuts in cheese. Nadjeeb also opens up about how he became involved in the cheesemongering world and how he came to open his own cheese shop. Kicking off the hacks with some thoughts on parmesan rinds and cheese rinds in general, and how the microwave can be your best friend when it comes to making unique cheese snacks, tune in to learn some interesting tidbits! This program has been brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
