Laura, The Cheese Cave - and Harry MacLachlin in Cheese Conversation
Laura mentioned, while some 30+ alumni crowded into the large bar area and the several table behind, that The Cheese Cave retail store had just opened one week before, on Friday June 12th and that we had the honor of being the first large group to visit. Here she is with Harry chatting likely not just about American Blue, also French cheeses as Harry has been a long time Francophile. I am grateful to see such a quality business in the old historic architecture of the city, French in origin, as Alexander Faribault, born in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin was half French and half Dakota, and remained friendly to his Dakota relatives who camped in their tipi's after the Dakota conflict of 1862. Thanks to Laura and her friendly staff for the great tasting and introduction to The Cheese Cave, virtually, without entering the real caves a few blocks to the east.
