* Be a Cheesemaker: We thought Jasper Hill Farm was clever with their luring in of eager cheese loyalists as willing labor; the Oregon Tourism Commission takes it a step further and uses hard labor at Rogue Creamery as a contest reward. We kid… who wouldn’t enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at Oregon’s most award-winning creamery plus a chance to get your hands dirty making cheese-filled truffles next door at Lillie Belle? Submit a video by next Friday, September 18 to enter to win this or one of the other “Cuisinternships” offered.

* NY Cheese Cook-off: In Brooklyn, NY, intrepid cooks will face-off this Sunday, September 13, in The Brooklyn Cheese Experiment, a cheese cook-off and home brew competition. Aside from the potential fame and glory of winning, a portion of proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Ovarian Cancer Research. 

* A Buffalo Taleggio? You heard it here first: Taleggio is the in cheese for fall. Janet Fletcher declares Quadrello di Bufala, a new buffalo-milk Taleggio-style cheese from Lombardy, a “must taste” cheese, and Tia Keenan concurs, describing it as “faboosh.” Have you gotten your hands on it yet? Let us know! 

* On the CheeseBlogs: Welcome to The Cheese Freak! The newest blog to join the caseosphere, The Cheese Freak (@thecheesefreak on twitter) has launched a project to chronicle himself and friends geeking out over cheese via video posts.  

* Briefly Noted: The fall issue of Culture is on the newsstands, or at your local cheese shop, and looking fabulous; and join us in wishing Cheesetique in Alexandria, VA, a happy 5th birthday!
