Is anyone aware of a cheese producer equivalent of FullCustomGospelBBQ.com? I.e. a directory of all TX cheese producers (with maybe more information)? Odd, but I can't find a trade association site or State govt. list.

Thanks!

I made a post on CH that detailed most of all of the Texas producers.

Excellent! But this is wasted on Chowhound. Can you create a web site and use the best ideas from FullCustomGospelBBQ to create a cheese equivalent?

Will let you know about a possible trip.

Worzel, two years ago Slow Food Dallas held a Texas Cheese Plateevent at El Centro. I believe it was the first time for any sort of organized Texas cheese event. At that time there was no organization or website and most of the cheese makers met each other for the first time that night. Other states have websites, but we don't even have a Texas cheese guild. Great idea.

The Texas wine industry has the reassuring rigid structure and organization of the KGB by comparison.

Someone should do this. There is a lot of good cheese stuff going on out there.

There is. There are also many poor and uninteresting Texas cheeses at prices that rival (or surpass) those of much better out-of-state or foreign cheeses of the same type. A web site that provides not only a directory, but informed, no-BS ratings of Texas cheeses would be a great resource.

How about calling it deathtopimentocheese.org?

No charge for the branding work, Worzel.

You have a whey with words!

That works for me. Same goes to Jalapeno cheese, caraway cheese, and other nefarious methods of palming off inferior produce.

deathtopimentocheese

I can't subscribe to that. I will agree on caraway cheese, jalapeno cheese, and even consider applying the ban to various wined or otherwise enhanced cheese; that stuff is certainly not to my taste. But, pimiento cheese is not cheese, really, it is a dish made with cheese, and in my opinion it is a classic and worthily escapes the doctrint that cheese should not be adulterated.

Discuss.
