Aaron Foster is man who knows cheese, so I was inclined to take notice when he emailed me about the Cheese by Hand project. Aaron describes it as "a revolutionary project being undertaken by Sasha Davies (of Murray's and Artisanal fame) and her husband Michael Claypool. They are traveling around the country over the course of four months, visiting dozens of cheesemakers, and interviewing them for their audio-blog. Nothing like this has ever been done in the United States, and I can't think of a better way to get the word out about American artisan cheesemaking." The kick-off and benefit is next Tuesday, April 25th. Tickets are $75.
