Local artisan cheeses are delicious and, duh, local. But don’t take our word for it; the American Cheese Society has recognized several already. You can pick up most of these at Houston Dairymaids.

We look for cheeses naturally made by hand and, when possible, from unpasteurized milk.” www.houstondairymaids.com ORIGINAL CAJETA Blue Heron Farm & Friends – Field Store, TX Cajeta is a Mexican-style goat's milk caramel.
