I was in Sedona Arizona this weekend, eating at a fancy French restaurant. Someone ordered the cheese plate. Good choice. All sorts of high-class fromage from around the world. The one California offering was from Cowgirl Creamery, which is some indication of the growing popularity of this Artisan Cheese Shop. A visit to their retail store is an inspiring experience - and educational as well, since they'll let you sample all their offerings, which also include some very upscale yogurt and other specialties. One of the most unique things here is a homemade paneer which should kick your Indian cooking up a few notches.
