How I became a Certified Cheese Professional

Liz Nerud, cheese specialist at Lunds Central
Thursday, October 10, 2013

I happen to be lucky enough to work for a company that holds passionate expertise as one of its core values. We take it pretty seriously, too. This past year has taken me on a journey designed to implement that very value; I became a Certified Cheese Professional through the American Cheese Society!

About 30 years ago, the American Cheese Society (ACS) was formed to provide a forum for the development of American artisan cheeses, taking fine European traditions and creating unique American specialties. As you shop your favorite Lunds or Byerly’s, even a quick perusal of our specialty cheese counters will prove to you the success of this venture. Our cheese education program has progressed leaps and bounds over the past years, due in no small part to the efforts of the ACS. It’s kind of a big deal.

Travel the World at the Our Cheese Counter

by John Stueland, deli category manager
Thursday, May 19, 2011

On any given day , at our Lunds or Byerly’s stores, you will find a vast selection of specialty cheese. Our specialty cheese counters are a destination, a place for discovery and education. The selection is always changing as local cheese makers continue to produce new creations and our importers endlessly discover new selections. Although almost half of our specialty cheese is domestically produced, at last count we sourced cheese from countries such as Norway, Germany, and Greece and from as far away as Australia. In all, you can find over 20 different countries represented in our delis.!

Arranged by both style and origin, perusing our cheese selections is like a visit to your favorite bookstore—each cheese tells its own story and is detailed by the makers’ craftsmanship, terrior, heritage, and innovation.
