Vermont Cheesemakers Festival 2012
For cheese lovers, the Vermont Cheesemakers festival at Shelburne Farms, in Vermont, is an event worth the drive. The festival, which featured over thirty cheese makers and 200 cheeses, is recapped by the Burlington Free Press.
Cheese was like a mega-celebrity surrounded by a retinue of admirers hoping that some of the cachet would rub off on them.
The various vendors were all there Sunday at the invitation of the Vermont Cheese Council, which was holding the expo for the fourth time. Forty cheesemakers and more than 200 cheeses were featured this year. The event sold out a month ago — 1,750 tickets at $40 for admission, $50 for beverage tasting. Each taster was issued a wine glass.
