Like out-of-town friends, magazines pop by every so often to give you a colorful update on the latest happenings before taking up permanent residence on the shelf in the bathroom. Schedule a regular visitation with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a one-year subscription to Culture: the word on cheese magazine (a $30 value). This deal may also be used to extend a current subscription.
Chock-full of content covering the makers and mongers of cheese, Culture: the word on cheese fills dairyphiles' noggins with knowledge and news via beautifully designed, quarterly issues. The upcoming summer issue will feature a special section on the cheeses of Canada, a cheese and beer pairing guide, and recommendations on farmstead cheese-making vacations that serve as vitamin-laced alternatives to cookie retreats and high-fructose getaways. Between issues, subscribers can get their cheese fix by visiting the magazine's website, where they can take in such features as a two-ingredient paneer recipe, tips for selecting fresh cheese, and detailed information about a gargantuan variety of cheeses. A database of local retailers helps readers track down gourmet wedges and wheels in their area, whether for dining on or for completing delicious cheesemobiles.
