The Cheesemonger Invitational 2011

April 13, 2011

This event was held last year for the first time with tremendous success.  Cheese shops and cheesemongers from across the country came to Long Island City, NY in order to participate.  Unfortunately, I had a conflict out-of-town and I couldn’t attend.  Not this year!  Once again, The Cheesemonger Invitational is back at the Larkin Center on Friday night, July 8th.

This event is for cheese professionals and enthusiasts alike.  Attendees will learn about cheese, eat cheese, talk about cheese, eat cheese…you get the idea.

Fromager Tia Keenan, quite famous among the cheese literati, is in charge of all the food.  She is well-known for her unique pairings and artful combinations which should make for quite a treat!

The evening is capped off by an all out competition between cheesemongers in a classic skills competition!  The mongers are judged on cutting, wrapping, tasting and pairing for a total of 10 grand in cash and prizes.  Yeah…Ten Grand…

Tickets are only $25, and I personally, cannot wait.

    I went last year, it was a blast! Tom & I may close shop early and bring the gang down to represent BVG. Oh, and we will eat CHEESE!

    I was there last year, it was awesome to see everyone from around the country and across the pond. I’m super excited about this year’s competition too.
