An Evening with "The Cheese Dude"

Mark Todd, AKA "The Cheese Dude", is a dairy and cheese expert that speaks all over the state, country, and globe. He will join our club on May 9 at 6 PM to give us some education.

You can find plenty of info about him on the web as he is a man on a mission in the cheese world. But he is also a local living in Monte Rio!

MetroActive reports:

"Otherwise known as Mark Todd, the 49-year-old Monte Rio dairy consultant makes a living promoting and consulting for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, the U.S. Dairy Export Council, the California Milk Advisory Board and a smattering of smaller enterprises. Todd's main focus—and the passion of his life—is teaching people to enjoy the pleasures of eating cheese with beer and wine."

You can also see him speaking on TouTube:
