“Oh to be a Beehive Cheese on Mother’s Day” or Gourmet S’mores Giveaway #5
With Mother’s Day coming up, I’ve been thinking about what I (or any mother) might like to receive in honor of the Big Day. Of course, as a food-lovin’ gal, my preferences fall toward the edible or imbibable, the exotic or even the familiar, just so long as it tastes delicious. I realize, however, that many moms would prefer something more indulgent than even a DB Royale. I’m referring of course, to a day at the spa, with mud baths and exfoliations and reiki. While you won’t find those services on this site, if you suspend your disbelief for a moment, I will present to you the foodie intersection of umami and shiatsu.
Which brings us to giveaway #5!
In 2005, brothers-in-law, Tim Welsh and Pat Ford, left the fast-paced world of software and real estate seeking a more simple way of life as artisan cheesemakers. T im and Pat wanted to bring back the local creamery, so with help from the agricultural school at Utah State University, they opened shop in 2005. Beehive Cheese is among only a few artisan cheesemakers in Utah.
Beehive Cheese also produces one of the only cheeses that may fit in as well at a high-end spa as it would at a gourmet marketplace like RegionalBest.com. Why? Award-winning Barely Buzzed Cheese from Beehive Cheese Company is hand-rubbed with two ingredients to create a uniquely delicious cheese that melts in your mouth. That’s right, it’s a pampered cheese.
