Wine, cheese and cherries

As we reported earlier, it was a WSU scientist who developed the Rainier cherry. Now, WSU researcher Walter Clore is being honored as the father of the Washington state wine industry.
Wine, cherries ... what's missing? How about some Cougar gold cheese? (The Web page includes a cow sound effect.) The WSU creamery isn't shipping now, due to the heat, but if you're in Pullman, you can pick up a few cans.
While you're there, try a "Grabber," WSU's version of an ice-cream sandwich. Both the cheese and ice cream come from university cows (they're very smart). This video offers a behind-the-scenes look at creamery operations.
