Issue No. 23
Aside from the actual food, my favourite kind of cheese comes in the form of teen dramas. I admit, with zero irony, that Beverly Hills, 90210 is my favourite show. It provides the one thing I want most out of television: an escape.
That’s what this magazine is about, too: transporting readers somewhere else. In this cheese-themed issue, we have stories from Greece, Georgia, the Okanagan, Whistler, and France; but we also have more existential trips, such as the one that dissects the allure of Guy Fieri, or another that explains why vegan cheese is now called Gary (seriously). Carolyn Nakagawa discusses identity as portrayed on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt; Pascale LaViolette paints a cheese still life, and Christine McAvoy documents drag queens and the things they hate. There are Hawkins Cheezies and porn posters, and even a custom cheese font. No matter how you slice it, within these pages, you’ll find your great escape.
