Each year when May blooms, a new energy seems to arise. A month chock-full of celebrations, May brings with it Mother’s Day, graduations, Cinco de Mayo, and Memorial Day. All of which call for food festivities. This month we have delicious recipes for every occasion. Whether you’re putting together a beautiful cheese board, or looking for that elusive perfect melted cheese pull, Real California Milk has you covered and smothered in yummy, cheesy ooey-gooeyness.
Are you already Dreaming of Cali—sand, sun, fun, Hollywood, wine country and… cows? Yep, that’s right. The Golden State has a dairy state of mind. In fact, it leads the nation in dairy production and is a world leader in sustainable dairy farming practices. Even more impressive, of the more than 1,200 California dairy farms, 99 percent are family-owned. California accounts for 18.5 percent of the United States’ milk supply (more than 39 billion pounds of fluid milk a year), and over 46 percent of California’s milk goes into cheese production.
