Whitestone Cheese scrubs up

When Whitestone Cheese  general manager Simon Berry got an SOS saying the crew of the TV comedy Scrubs was missing their weekly fix of WInsor Blue he organised a personal delivery.  

The emergency call came from the show’s production co-ordinator Hillary Hirsch one of whose responsibilities is organising a weekly wine and cheese party for everyone involved in the production. A change of distributers in southern California meant her usual supplier wasn’t stocking Windsor Blue and the cast and crew were getting withdrawal symptoms so in desperation she contacted Simon.

Serindipitously his father, Whitestone managing director Bob Berry, was passing through Los Angeles airport on a business trip the following Saturday so packed a 4 kg wheel of cheese in ice in his carry-on luggage and hand delivered it.

When Hillary met Bob at the ariport and discovered he had a nine hour wait before his connecting flight to Atlanta she invited him to join her at a family barbeque.

Bob said he enjoyed the hospitality and also the opportunity to put the other cheese samples he was carrying in the fridge and re-freeze the chilly pads to keep them cool for the next leg of his journey.

Hillary took the cheese to work the next Monday and the cast and crew were so delighted to get it they held an impromptu wine and cheese party that evening because they couldn’t wait for the usual Friday party. They also photographed themselves with the cheese, signed the photos and sent them to the company and they now hang on the cafe wall.

Bob was in the USA for a marketing trip to Atlanta and Boston but he said the distribution in southern California was sorted out too so the Scrubs crew should be able to get their weekly fix of Windsor Blue. But just to make sure they don’t miss out Bob will hand deliver another wheel of cheese on his next trip to the USA.

    BB – maybe the cold down here which makes the stone fruit sweeter, swedes tastier and blue cod better does something to the grass which improves the milk and in turn the cheese.
