You don’t have to be a Green Bay Packers fan to be cheesy. Just walk into any of the three Chicago locations of Pastoral Artisan Cheese Bread & Wine, and you’ll be able to geek out on all the chèvre, reblochon and gruyère you care to.
Among the skills I think are crucial to being a) a good entertainer, and b) a halfway knowledgeable food lover, is having the skill and confidence to assemble a proper cheese board. That’s where Pastoral comes in. They obviously sell them ready to go, but this week, we’re asking Fromager/Cheese Guru Cesar Olivares to show us how it’s done.
