Cheese!

I LOVE cheese. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE IT!! Okay, so I'm lactose intolerant but regardless of the price I'll pay for eating cheese I'll EAT cheese when I can! YUM! Cheese! Well guess what has FINALLY opened!? Cheese Louise in Richland! They have a store in Walla Walla and have been out here at the Farmers' Market where I "discovered" their yummy cheeses. What I REALLY wish is that store from Seattle would open over here as well since they make their cheeses right in front of you! Oh YUM! Still... Cheese Louise has some YUMMY cheese and are definitely less expensive than the one in Seattle (I paid $30 for a 1/4 pound of cheddar in Seattle).

Here's the TCH article on Cheese Louise!

From the Tri-City Herald:
The Richland store opened quietly Oct. 1, but tonight's grand opening will be anything but quiet. Felton and Eberle will be celebrating with a "Cheese Saw Massacre" from 7 to 11 p.m.

Drop by for cheese samples, listen to live music by the Easy Swing Band Plus of Richland and watch for the massacre to begin.

Felton declined to explain exactly what will happen but did hint that it involves a large block of cheese and a chainsaw.

"And any time you have chain saws and cheese you know something will happen," she said.

"Some people cut the ribbon, we cut the cheese," Felton said, then apologized. "Sorry, so many people make that joke that we've found we have to beat them to the punch."

The fun continues Saturday with three free cheese classes: Cheese 101 at 1 p.m.; European Cheeses at 2:15 p.m.; and Wine and Cheese Pairings at 3:30. The last class is limited to 25 people and you must be over 21.

The classes will be taught by Bill Krieger, owner of the original Cheese Louise, located in Tamara's Gifts and Teas, 321 Wellington Ave., Walla Walla. His wife, Tamara Krieger, a chef, runs that store as well her catering business.

Both Cheese Louise locations carry a wide variety of cheeses with the selection changing from week to week.
