Culture Cheese Wrapping Contest at California's Artisan Cheese Festival
The Culture Cheese Wrap Contest evolved from Elaine’s experience at the Cheesemonger Contest by Larkin Cheese Distributors in New York. Among many other parts of the event, Elaine thought that the cheese wrapping would be a particularly successful and fun idea for California's Artisan Cheese Festival. We created a two-part competition for both cheese consumers and professionals, giving every cheese-lover the chance to show off their skills in the art of the Cheese Wrap.
The competition proved very fun indeed. Congratulations to the winner of the amateur competition – Mike Lucia from Copain Wines! We hope you enjoy the prizes.
We were very impressed by the skills that were demonstrated by every participant. Lynda Hurley, a cheese consumer, missed the first amateur contest yet felt confident enough (with some encouragement from Elaine) to participate in the professional contest. And how glad we are that she participated as she WON the second contest, along with Henry T Cram. Congratulations to both of you and thank you very much for taking part. We were especially impressed by Lynda's performance as a cheese consumer. We hope you enjoy the prizes, however, please bear with us as it may take us a little while to split the prizes in half…
