This is an exciting day. Although he has appeared on the blog several times, my brother-in-law Dave has never appeared in Friendly Encounters...until today!
Dave works for Saputo Cheese USA. They feature a full line of premium cheeses. Dave is in Logistics and doesn't have anything to do with the actual making of the cheese. Still, without Logistics, all of that great cheese would just sit in a warehouse.
I have tried their cheese. Actually, I have devoured several of their cheeses. They are outstanding. My only complaint is the lack of goat cheese. Seriously, they need to start producing goat cheese.
At the holiday party, Dave and Nancy met the company founder, Lino Saputo Sr. Probably at Nancy's urging, they took a picture with Mr. Saputo for me.
I am glad Dave finally made his Friendly Encounter debut. I am glad to write about Saputo Cheese, because they do really make great cheese. Finally, I am glad I made it through this whole piece without referring to Saputo as "the big Cheese".
