Canadian Amateur Cheesemaking Competition

Canadian Amateur Cheesemaking Awards – Lets Make Them Happen!

We are getting closer to this becoming a reality, interest is growing. The Media Release is ready and starting to be sent out, see the copy below.

AC-Announcement 01-29As you can tell by the release I am part of the organizing team, this means I will not be entering any of my cheeses for judging, but it gives me the opportunity to work with a great group of people who run the Canadian Cheese Awards/Le Concours des fromages fins canadiens.   I highly encourage everyone who is interested to email competition (at symbol) cheesefestival.ca  and let us know, including those not in Canada as we are looking at expanding to include US home cheesemakers too.

Lets make this a reality and see you in Picton in June!
