Simon Pearce: The Best Cheddar Soup in the World
I took a detour down to the Simon Pearce Mill/Glass Factory/Restaurant in Quechee, Vermont. Ordered a bowl of their cheddar cheese soup. Seven dollars. Irishman Simon Pearce bought the old mill, turned it into a glass factory, and added a first-class restaurant.
It's worth a 100 mile detour. It's that good.
And that's the way the cheddar Ball bounces.
