Several years back, on a lark, we met Sophie at a Paso Robles wine tasting event and sampled several of her cheeses. I was not a “cheese fan” at the time and was nervous due to the powerful smells and strange looking rinds—I was raised on Kraft singles and thought all cheese was wrapped in cellophane! Historically, I knew that cheese was a worldwide staple and frequently sold for astronomical prices, but that wasn’t me! Thankfully, I did taste the cheeses and it had an immediate and positive impact! To say, that we now consume a fair bit of cheese is an understatement—we have a refrigerator drawer full of it. I prefer creamy and pungent Blues, goat/sheep, and Alpine style cheeses, but my wife is traveling a different road. Unfortunately, Sophie closed her shop and doesn’t know how she changed our lives...culinarily speaking!
