Tales of the Crowdsourced Kosher Cheddar (Part II)

This is one of my favorite food stories from the last year or so, and it's especially great because it involves kosher foodies, entrepreneurs, artisan cheesemakers and dreams. We first met Mark Bodzin when he was just a mashgiach with a Kickstarter idea, and then he turned it into something great. Read part one of the story here.

Recently, I got the chance to taste the first fruits of Mark's labors (and I have another pound in my fridge if anyone wants to make me an offer!), and I had the great pleasure of interviewing him again. This time I also interviewed the head cheesemaker at Shelburne Farms (yes, that's a real job! Isn't it cool?). Here is my part two.

It's just such a joy to meet people who are as committed to their work as they are committed to quality. Coming in Jan-Feb 2016, the next Shelburne Farms' kosher cheddar... this time Chalav Yisroel. Looking forward to hearing many more good things from Mark Bodzin and Shelburne Farms.
