Everybody, Say Cheeeeeeese: Vermont Celebrates its Cheesemakers

CheeseLookout France, the U.S. State of Vermont is making competition with its fine and award-winning artisan cheese products. For those who missed it this past weekend, the Green Mountain State proudly presented and celebrated its premier cheesemakers and artisan cheese products at the Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne. Tickets to the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival were high in demand ($20 entry per person, $45 for educational seminars) and sold out far in advance. And it’s no wonder people flocked to this event, since Vermont has the highest number of cheesemakers per capita (over 40 of them) – and let’s not forget to mention the blatantly obvious – nothing beats a fine piece of ripe cheese, accompanied with a good glass of red wine: simply scrumptious!

Participants tasted samples from over 40 cheesemakers, 20 wineries and 15 artisan food producers (including the local artisan Ben & Jerry’s, even though I’m having a hard time imagining how ice cream and cheese could strike a match.)

If you were one of the lucky ones to snatch one of 1000 available tickets, we’d love to hear your story!

For all who missed this exquisite culinary experience, there are plenty of cheesy events scheduled for the fall.
