Pictured here is a gigantic map that’s pinned up on my living room wall, with a tack for every country Pete and I have been to. I love looking at the places we have ventured to together, but my favorite part about this map is that no matter how many times I look, I always seem to notice a tiny little country I had not seen before. I wonder…what’s it like there? What do they eat? How do they live??? Traveling to new places, experiencing the culture, and eating their food are some of my life passions.
Right now Pete and I are discussing…where to next?
We’ve got our eyes on a few places, but after my Cracker Barrel trip, I may or may not *ahem* have been a little extra swayed to go to England. Cheddar cheese was invented in a town 130 miles outside of London in the year 1500. Can you guess the name of this town? Cheddar, of course! At the edge of the village there are caves where they have aged the cheese for hundreds of years. These caves provide the perfect humidity and constant temperature ideal for maturing cheese (and I think it’s pretty cool that Cracker Barrel still honors that history by aging their cheddar cheese in caves too). If I travel to England next, I know Cheddar will definitely be on my list of places to go.
Do you like to travel? What are some of the coolest places you have been to?
In case you missed it, I did a post a few weeks back on how to create genius cheese pairings for a party. With Memorial Day coming up, be sure to check out my post for ideas of how to make some awesome party bites with Cracker Barrel Cheese.
