In this episode of Wisconsin Foodie we feature a festival that beats all festivals (for cheese) Cheesetopia. Cheesetopia is an event created by Cheesemonger and overall Cheese geek, Jeanne Carpenter, that showcases the best of the best in Midwest cheeses. Kyle crashes the first ever party, meets some of our favorite Wisconsin cheesemakers and tries some award winning cheese. At the event Kyle meets one cheesemaker in particular, Katie Furman of LaClare farms. Katie is in her twenties and becoming one of the most awarded cheesemakers in Wisconsin for goat cheese, most recently winning runner up for Best Cheese in America. Kyle hits the road to visit, tour and indulge in some of the award winning cheese coming from Laclare farm and get some perspective on what makes their cheese so special.
