Jan. 20 marks the celebration of National Cheese Lover’s Day. If you like all things cheese, take this opportunity to honor the popular food. Follow our suggestions for a cheesy day.

 

Wine and Cheese

Host a wine and cheese night. Consult with your local grocery store or wine seller for the best pairings. Invite your friends and family to judge them.

 

Sweet and Savory

Cheese can be prepared in sweet or savory dishes. Have a taste test with different recipes at your office or with your group of friends to decide which preparation of cheese is the favorite.

 

Travel for Cheese

France, Switzerland, Spain and Italy are known as popular cheese exporters. Take this time and travel to experience the classic cheese varieties straight from the source.

 

Go to a Cheese Festival

Book tickets to a cheese festival. There are several annual cheese festivals throughout the United States, including the California Artisan Cheese Festival, Great Wisconsin Cheese Festival and the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival.

 

Try Something New

If you stick to the popular varieties like mozzarella and cheddar, branch out and sample some new types of cheese. Specialty grocery stores will be able to guide you in the right direction if you’re unsure of where to start on your new cheese journey.

Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
