I picked up a copy of Culture Magazine last weekend at the Oregon Cheese Festival at Rogue Creamery in Central Point/Medford, Oregon. Didn't have a chance to read it until yesterday - over a week later. As I am casually flipping through the pages, my eyes drifted across the New On the Market column. Item number 2 is FREYA'S WHEEL!!! My jaw practically hit the floor. I look again and there it is. My cheese! In a magazine! Cool! I totally forgot that this might be happening.
I remember an email in January after the article ran in the San Francisco Chronicle. A writer from Culture wanted a photo of Freya's Wheel. They were going to mention it. I thought it was for a blog. I had no idea it was going into the magazine. This is what happens when you work 12 hour days, day after day. You start to forget things like this.
I was completely gobsmacked to find my photo and mention of my cheese in the glossy pages of a magazine. I was sitting along at the dining room table and there was no one around with whom I could gush and share the news. The cat was asleep on the couch. The dog had his back to me, staring out the window, hoping a squirrel might appear on the lawn. Jim wasn't around. So I put the magazine down and forgot about it for several hours.
That night, Jim picked up the magazine and was looking at an article on Spain. I told him to look at page 10. He does. "Hey! Franklin Peluso is making a washed rind Teleme," he announces. He knows I have a huge weakness for Teleme. "Yes, dear. I saw that, too. What ELSE is on the page?" "Oh!" Jim starts. "Hey! Freya's Wheel is here. I thought I recognized that cheese picture." He was excited, too. Such good news. One more thing to put on the wall of our Farm Store!
