In early August, I reported on the Dallas area cheesemakers who won big time national awards at the 25th Annual American Cheese Society Competition in Austin. I’ll wait while you read the post

…Okay, so now you know Latte Da, Lucky Layla, and Mozzarella Company made our region proud. In a follow-up post, I printed a 2,500 word document detailing the complete list of winners and judges. At the bottom of the lengthy post,  I typed: IF YOU ARE STILL WITH ME, YOU ARE AN OFFICIAL SIDEDISH CHEESEHEAD AND IF YOU SEND ME AN EMAIL YOU WILL BE INVITED TO A VERY SPECIAL CHEESE EVENT. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Please use this form rather than sending an email.]

Three of you, drum roll please: Worzel (shocker, I know), Meaders, and Douglas replied. They are now official SideDish CheeseHeads. But here is the even better news: I am putting together a small FREE event to celebrate Texas cheese and Texas wine. It will be in late September. So let’s start a list below so I can get an idea of how big to blow this out. Lists, I love lists. Go. Sign up. Be a SideDish CheeseHead. We will make Wisconsin blush with envy.

    In – I love cheese and Scardello’s has already introduced me to quite a few delightful Texas cheeses.

  • Terra

    Absolutely. I went to Austin and had a terrific time with the great peeps of Mozzco, Scaredello and Fresh Point. Hope it’s after Sept. 28th, due to travel schedule.

  • Meaders

    am I included or do I have to say “in”

    Meaders, you and Douglas and Worzel are local cheese royalty. You will be knighted at the event.

    I’m in. Used to go to the Artisanal events and classes in NYC all the time before moving here. Would love to see similar stuff in Dallas.

  • Twinwillow

    I’d like to “whey” in here and say, count me in too!
    But, I refuse to address Worzel as, “sir”.

  • Curious

    In!

    And can anyone confirm or deny that Molto Formaggio in HP Village is no longer? My husband went yesterday and came back empty handed saying the spot was vacant. Is this true or another case of men not being able to find anything?

    MOLTO FROMAGGIO IS ALIVE AND WELL IN HP VILLAGE. TALKED TO THEM AND THEY HAVE A NEW SHIPMENT OF SWISS CHEESES IN THE STORE. GET YOUR HUSBAND A GPS.
