The Advocate reports: Several years ago when Kraft discontinued garlic roll cheese, area cooks launched a mission to find a suitable replacement in order to continue to serve our beloved Spinach Madeline. The substitute has been found. The tradition begun by Madeline Wright in the first River Road Recipes cookbook shall continue.
