Recap: 2013 Minnesota Cheese Festival
Thankfully, what happens in Minnesota doesn't have to stay in Minnesota. It's no trip to Vegas, but the 2013 Minnesota Cheese Festival still delivers some huge jackpots. Our friends at Cheese and Champagne recap the highlights--like sheep's milk butter, beer-washed cheese, and garlic pepper chevre--that upped the ante at this year's turnout.
The second annual Minnesota Cheese Festival took place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds over two days to prevent the long lines that plagued last year’s festival, and from all appearances, the event went smoothly. I only attended the second day since the first day fell on Yom Kippur, and it turned out that fasting the day before probably was a good strategy. Though the Minnesota Cheese Festival doesn’t rival the gut-busting Festival of Cheese at the American Cheese Society Annual Conference, you’d be hard-pressed to leave hungry.
