For those that prefer their cheese between two slices of toasted, buttery bread, there will be a grilled cheese recipe competition. There’s still time to enter as recipes will be accepted through May 1, and the winner will debut his or her creation at the festival. Entries must include cheese and bread—duh—and can include up to six ingredients. That’s means someone is definitely going to enter a sandwich with six different types of bacon, and it probably will be us.
Expect the usual festival fun of educational seminars as well as cooking demonstrations throughout the weekend. Some of the events will set you back around $35, but they do usually include wine pairings. If you still want more cheese following the festival, there will be special “Cheese Fest Best” dishes offered any many restaurants throughout the city. It’s time like this we’re pretty thankful that we’re not lactose intolerant.
