Olympic Cheese, Stinky Cheese and a New Home for Sahara in Today's Eater's Digest

An early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives.

Cheese has a new use --- at least for winter Olympian Lindsey Vann. She has been using Topfan, an Austrian cheese to reduce the inflammation in her leg. Check out the full story at CNN.

Its not surprising that some of the best skunky cheese is going to come from the kids in Humboldt County, CA. Cypress Grove Chevre has been making goat cheese since 1983 and you can now taste the divine flavor of their wonderful cheeses at Whole Foods. Visit their website or head to your local Whole Foods and pick some up.

Tempe's beloved Sahara Middle Eastern Restaurant that was once at Mill and University before being leveled to make room for the new CVS, has recently found a new home. Go show this long time local restaurant some love at their new location on the northeast corner of McClintock and Southern.
