The best Parmesan of Mexico in is…Wisconsin?
Why go north to Wisconsin for a cheese originally from the south in Mexico? Because Wisconsin is where cheesemakers go to become Cheese Masters. Because great cheese knows no borders. And basically, because we make dang good cotija cheese.
It's not just Mexican-style cheese like cotija that thrives in Wisconsin. Our cheesemakers have pioneered and perfected cheeses from all over the world, winning piles of prizes in the process. Cheesemaking's been part of our culture since 1837, a decade before Wisconsin became a state. Cheese is to Wisconsin what sunshine is to Mexico – it's everywhere. In fact, we do more flavors and varieties of cheese than anywhere else on earth, and we win more awards than any country or state. (Not trying to brag – that's just a fact.)
So next time you get the chance to taste cotija cheese from Wisconsin, don't hesitate to say "Si, por favor."
