National Cheese Day in Costa Mesa

Posted on June 4, 2013 | 11:57am

June 4 is National Cheese Day and celebrating is easy – all you have to do is indulge in your favorite type of cheese!

Hundreds of different types of cheeses from many countries exist.  With vast differences in shape, color, consistency, taste, smell and texture, there is a seemingly endless variety of cheese to choose from.  In this regard, cheese has many parallels with wine.  The ingredients, process, origin, use and other factors vary greatly.  Like wine, cheese is equally as diverse and can certainly add to just about any meal.

Whether you are a cheese aficionado or just looking to expand your palate, the Cellar Cheese Shop at the OC Mix in Costa Mesa is a one-stop-shop for any and all of your cheese desires!
