Edmonton food bloggers join year-long Cheesepalooza extravaganza

Ian Treuer has been an early and dedicated follower of Wedge in the Round- he and some fellow Canadian cheese-lovers have launched Cheesepalooza!

Ian Treuer isn’t sure what compels him to make cheese. He thinks it might be his DNA.

After all, his maternal grand-father had a dairy farm in Quebec, and made cheese, and his paternal grandfather also raised dairy cattle in Austria. But as Treuer works in a print shop, and bucolic is but a dream, he has had to find other ways to feed his passion for those curd-crafted bundles of milky madness.

That’s part of the reason Treuer is involved in Cheesepalooza, a year-long extravaganza of making cheese at home. Along with three other cheese fanatics and food bloggers in the city, Valerie Lugonja (A Canadian Foodie), Addie Raghavan (Big Cheese Project), and Deb Krause (Simple Pleasures), Treuer will be creating a fresh cheese in his own kitchen every month for the next year. More than two dozen other participants, some local and some from far-flung locales such as Australia, have already signed on to the project, which started in August. Together, they will share their cheese-making stories online.

Always wanted to make taste fresh burrata? Now’s your chance.

Thanks, Ian, for keeping me looped in! Read the full story atย  Edmonton food bloggers join year-long Cheesepalooza extravaganza.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
