Oaxaca. Waukesha. Let's call the cheese thing off.
We know what you're thinking: how can Midwest cheesemakers possibly make great Mexican cheese?
Well, with cheese today, it's not about where you are. It's about what you know. And our cheesemakers know a lot. (Seriously, they're like the Jeopardy champions of cheese.) Maybe it's because we have the only Master Cheesemaker program in the world outside of Switzerland. Perhaps it's because we've been making cheese since before we were a state. Or maybe it's because we are a people obsessed with cheese and determined to push the boundaries of what cheesemaking can be.
Whatever the reason, our drive to make the best cheese in the world seems to be working, judging by the 5,552 awards we've won. And by the sheer amount of cheese we sell to the rest of the nation and the world.
The beauty of cheese is that it can inspire cheesemakers around the world. Yes, Oaxaca cheese originated in Mexico, but Wisconsin knows cheese. And our Oaxaca is dang good and you can count on our Oaxaca to elevate any Mexican dish you cook up.
Bottom line: it doesn't really matter if your oaxaca cheese is made in Mexico or Menominee, as long as it's the best cheese in the world. And trust us, it is.
