The Cheese Platter - Show Notes Part 1, Dork UnCorked Radio @charellischeese

I know that this is a little backwards, but you know what, that is just the way this is going to roll. Heather from Charelli’s Cheese Shop & Delicatessen was good enough to drop by with a very impressive cheese platter, designed with Mother’s Day in mind.…
