If Wisconsin is known for one thing, it's cheese. In fact, Wisconsin is filled with artisan creameries which create award winning cheeses with the Dairy State's abundance of fresh milk. And each creamery has its own unique story to tell.

On this week's podcast, we chat with Kristine Hansen, author of a brand new book, "The Wisconsin Cheese Cookbook." Together we explore the book's mouthwatering recipes, fascinating stories and fun facts about the State's most delectable commodity. Tune in for our discussion as well as a very special food porn minute taken right from the book.
