This week we are all about cheese, starting with a glimpse of what it takes to become one of America’s finest cheesemongers. We go behind the scenes of the wacky and wild competition The Cheesemonger Invitational. Cheesemonger Greselda Powell of Murray’s Cheese in NYC takes Francis under her wing to teach him how to identify cheese by taste and aroma. Jack Bishop of America’s Test Kitchen brings us some hard truths about keeping cheese at home. And we invite cheese expert Tia Keenan into the studio with Francis to take listener calls.
