About

Facts N' Cheese was a video show that debuted online in 2009.  In each episode, I took an awkward trek around the world of cheese. My friends joined as guests and I would improvise everything I knew about a particular curd conglomeration. 

It's been 9 years and we're back! We just need your help to get ingredients for our next 5 episodes (and to make it way more PROFESH).

Our costs include:

  • Cheese (it's not cheap!)
  • Pairing ingredients
  • Equipment
  • Lights
  • Illustrations by Kit Mills
  • Editing time
  • Our own time!

We're ready to teach you all you need to know about cheese and how to enjoy it. Venture with us as we take you beyond cheddar in the wonderful world of domestic American cheese culture, worldly wheels and affinage.

PERSONAL CHEESE PAIRING

One of the rewards is a very special cheese pairing, just for you. At the end of the campaign, we'll send out a survey of questions about you and what you like to eat and you will be matched up with a cheese you should try. Think of it like a cheese horoscope.

ABOUT US

Jenn de la Vega is editor-at-large of Put A Egg On It and author of Showdown: Comfort Food, Chili & BBQ. She has appeared on Guy Grocery Games and ChefShock with Justin Warner. Jenn is currently creator in residence at TASTE and Kickstarter.

Vance Spicer has been shooting in NYC since 2005. Since the first series of Fact N' Cheese he went on to work for Mind of a Chef, Tasting Table, Man vs. Food and Wasted! The Story of Food Waste. You could say that Jenn introduced him into the amazing world of food. Among many other places, Vance has also worked for Netflix, Buzzfeed, PBS and CBS.

Risks and challenges

We're already shooting the episodes! The only thing that may slip is editing. We're freelancers and need to take on other projects to live. We'll communicate any delays we as soon as we know (but we so far don't anticipate them!).
