How to Host a Cheese Tasting
Did you know that about one-third of all milk produced in the United States goes to cheese making? Natural cheese is made from four basic ingredients: milk, salt, “good bacteria” and the enzyme rennet. From there, cheesemakers can adjust the basic recipe to make all of the cheeses we know and love. Life is better with cheese.

Here’s a resource to know what to pair your cheese with if you are ever hosting a cheese tasting (or maybe just offering a cheese plate at a summer event or party!)

Take Your Congress member to Work July 17

The Academy invites RDNs to “Take Your Congress member to Work” in August. Inviting elected officials and their staff to your practice or facility helps them understand the important and valuable role RDNs play in improving the health and wellbeing of the nation.

It is also an opportunity for elected officials to see how federal programs work in their local communities.

The Academy will host a webinar to help you plan the site visit and provide tips and talking points on the Academy’s legislative priorities.

The webinar will be on July 17 at 2 p.m. (Eastern Time).
