THE CHEESE MASTER
Edelweiss Cheese Shop
Master Cheesemaker Bruce Workman and his 10 employees process a stunning 100,000 pounds of milk a day at Edelweiss Creamery. He specializes in 180-pound cheese wheels. In their New Glarus shop, Bruce and his wife, Kathy, happily shave off sample slices. If Bruce is around, tell him what kind of beer or wine you prefer. He’s a fount of pairing inspiration.
THREE TO TRY
The shop’s signature Swissstyle cheese; pairs best with dark beer or red wine.
Semisoft, mild and creamy; great for melting or paired with white wine.
Ultra-creamy and soft; try it with a lighter red wine or lager.
