Are You Ready For Me?
Today I’m flying out to New York City to attend the Cheesemonger Invitational, a biannual competition among the country’s best cheesemongers. Imagine the olympics – only with cheese.
A cheesemonger is more than just a curd nerd who can break down a wheel of cheese into wedges. I think CMI’s website says it best:
“Great cheese does not exist without great cheesemongers. They are care takers, truth tellers and therapists for the cheese. They are knights, priests and politicians for the cheese. They are the last stop before consumption. Without great cheesemongers, cheese dies a lonely, sad death. And when a cheesemonger does their job well, a cheese lives its final days with Nobility, Honor and Respect. This profession requires an unwavering commitment to practical skills, as well as, a never ending desire to learn more about history and science. The Cheesemonger Invitational is that rare opportunity for amazing cheesemongers to be celebrated by their community.”
I’m very excited to show my support to my fellow cheese lovers! Follow my cheesy NYC trip on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook. Hope to see you all at #cheesechurch on Sunday – it’s going to be one hell of a service!
