Twelve Days of Good Food Gifting- Hot Cheese

Article by Natalie Morris, written for Good Food Finder.

Day 12: POP UP CHEESE SHOP AT HOTDISH INC.

We must stress the "in no particular order" on this one. Truth be told- cheese is one of our favorite things and, by that order, should probably be #1. Stinky, creamy, oozy, nutty- the pungent mold smell that permeates from an age-old cheese cave makes us nearly happier than anything else.

And that's why when Lara Mulchay and life/business partner Joel LaTondress said they were popping up an online cheese shop for the holidays- goosebumps literally occurred.

Lara (aka @petitefromageaz on Twitter) formerly owned FatCheese and Petite Fromage, where Phoenicians got to know they could trust her when she said she'd bring by or cut exactly what we were looking for and not much more had to be said. We've missed her expertise, but now she's back for a limited time and has a super-smart man in her life (aka @azhotdish) to bring us the GOODness of cheese (and charcuterie!) in a super quick and effortless way. We went with the always classic Beehive Cheese Co. Barely Buzzed cheddar and of course opted for Arizona favorites like Fiore di Capra, Gina's Homemade and Foote's Hold Dairy.
