In today’s episode of Our Portuguese Table, we chat with Donna Pacheco of Achadinha Cheese Company in Petaluma, California. The company’s name comes from the family’s roots in Achadinha, Nordeste, São Miguel. Donna tells us about the importance of feeding your animals well and how it impacts the final product.
In 2002, one of Achadinha’s cheese received the American Cheese Society Best in Show. Maria tells us about a serendipitous connection between Achadinha and Petaluma.
