The full list of winners of the 2011 World Cheese Awards has now been posted. Our own Kate Arding was a judge at the event, check out her blog post for her perspective and some really great photos.
France snatched the top World Cheese Awards trophy back from Britain yesterday when judges crowned a 10-month Ossau Iraty the 2011 World Champion – beating last year’s winner, Cornish Blue, by a narrow margin.
It’s the second time round for farmhouse producer Fromagerie Agour, which took the top title in 2006 with the same variety.
The cheese is now imported to the UK by QST/Cheese de France.
