WATCH: So What Is Artisan Cheese, Anyway?

First, let’s get one thing straight: there’s nothing inherently snobby about a good piece of cheese.

Filmed on location at Portland’s Wedge Festival in 2009 and at Artisan Creameries throughout Oregon, Northwest Artisan Cheesemakers talk about what “Artisan” means to them.
