Good Pepper x Cheese Sex Death


What if the only

Valentine your heart desired

was a luscious cheese?

That was the question posed by our friend Erika Kubick. A former cheesemonger, she created the site Cheese Sex Death “to inspire people to indulge in this sensual world of funky rinds and oozing cream lines.” Her seductive pairings and weekly #CheeseChurch videos inspire devoted followers around the world, and her Chicago events sell out faster than you can say Tête de Moine.

Erika hosts an annual Make Love to Cheese Haiku Contest, inviting cheese lovers to get down and curdy with a sexy cheese poem. We collaborated ahead of this year’s contest to create a photo story in her signature goth style with some of her favorite cheeses, lots of drama, and of course the cheese goddess herself.

If these shots have you in the mood, head over to Cheese Sex Death and enter the haiku contest (it closes February 13). The winning poem will win a selection of cheeses from Emmi USA and Roth Cheese hand selected by Erika.
