National Cheese Lovers’ Day in the US

Posted on January 20, 2010 by | Posted in News | Comments: Comments Off

Maybe you’re gaga for gouda or filled with glee by brie. Perhaps you think feta is better…

Whichever it is, today is National Cheese Lovers’ Day in the US. It is not entirely clear who it was that decided this would be the case, and it is not the only unofficial cheese-related holiday in the US calendar.

However, the Internet clearly thinks it is National Cheese Lovers’ Day and even the LA Times agrees. So it must be.

In honour of the occasion, LibriVox is proud to release its long-awaited recording of Bob Brown’s classic The Complete Book of Cheese.
