For 20 years the American Cheese Society has hosted an annual competition to recognize the best in American cheesemaking. Two decades ago the judges tasted and rated 20 cheeses over a weekend, at ACS 2013 that number is expected to climb to over 1,700. The competition is fierce, the cheeses are fantastic, and you’ll not find any coverage of the cheese-off on ESPN nor the Food Channel. Who won? Who lost? Why? Let ACS judge and Rainbow Grocery Cooperative cheese buyer Gordon Edgar regale you with the stories while you taste the fruits of his labors: 2013’s first place winners. You’ll learn how a judge tastes and scores cheese and then try your hand at being the judge yourself.
