Wheel of BellaVitano Chai and I

… AKA What Other Cheese Nerds Are Saying About My Website and Me…

Everyone of us in the cheese biz has been called a variety of nicknames… imagine my surprise to discover that there are hundreds out there who think they are the “Queen of Cheese”… I’ve been called “Cheese Whiz”, “Cheese Goddess”, “St. Peter of Cheese Heaven” and of course, a few that I prefer to forget and never mention…

But every once in a while, someone sends praise my way that touches me and gives me that little something to believe what I am doing with my website and my pursuit of all things cheese is appreciated…

Here are a few:

“We use your website as a staff education resource in our department. It’s a great resource for my staff and member workers to learn more about the products they are working with and our profession. We truly appreciate the work you’ve done and your willingness to share knowledge. Thank you.” Jonathan Milks ACS CCP – Honest Weight Co-op, Albany NY

“This site (referring to FB Study Group) offers a lot of great information and Marcella Wright does a fantastic job of posting great infromation for those who are taking the exam.” Michael Landis, ACS CCP, ACS Certified Educator at GFI, Atlanta, Georgia
