I’ve been on a cheese kick lately.  But, I find myself specifically craving red-waxed cheddar. I know the artificially-colored wax coating isn’t supposed to influence flavor, but I love the texture of the cheddar found just under the surface of the wax.  AND, I like dipped cheeses better than brushed cheeses.  Something about those bright red rounds reminds me of the comfort of childhood before cholesterol and added pounds influenced my food choices.  This next Call wants your wax inspirations.  Check it out…

Check out this Call for Entries from Mount Dora Center for the Arts (Mount Dora, FL) for Big Bad Wax, a national juried encaustic exhibition.  These exhibits are harder to find, so be certain not to miss this opportunity…
