Janet Fletcher names “Cameo” California Cheese All Star

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in In the News

Cheese columnist Janet Fletcher includes Cameo as one of 10 exceptional California cheeses

There are just a few exceptional magazines for cheese lovers, and that short list includes one of our favorites, Cheese Connoisseur. What a happy surprise last week to open the fall issue and read that Bay Area cheese columnist and expert, Janet Fletcher, included Redwood Hill’s Camembert-style Cameo in one of the magazines feature this month: “San Francisco: The Ultimate 1-Day Cheese Tour”. For those of us who live in or near San Francisco, we already know that San Francisco is a cheese-lovers and food lovers fantasy land and that multiple award-winning Cameo is a dream come true!

Ms. Fletcher writes…

“With enough cheese merchants, cheese-centric restaurants and cheese classes to occupy a visitor for weeks, the town makes it tough on day trippers.” “So put reason aside, lace up your most comfortable walking shoes…and experience at least some of what this West Coast food mecca offers.”

She then takes us through an immersion of cheese and the best places in the city to taste and purchase. Ms. Fletcher invites visitors who are in the Bay Area to not miss a chance to taste her list of exceptional cheeses, many of which are available only locally. Redwood Hill Farm Cameo is included in that exclusive list of top cheese all stars! Read the entire article in the fall issue of Cheese Connoisseur.

    04/25/15 – picked up some lovely Cameo @ Rainbow Grocery – Cheese Dept. (Fav. Place to pick up cheese from very knowledgeable staff). Outstanding cheese…may have to run back in to San Francisco to pick up more before it is gone.

      Wonderful! FYI, we will be making it again this fall for the holiday “eating” season! I’m sure our good friends at Rainbow Grocery will be bringing Cameo in again for all the fans. Thanks for your note!
