The World Cheese Awards – the world’s most prestigious international cheese event – were held at Taste of London and entries were received from the USA, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, in addition to every cheese making nation in mainland Europe. 120 experts from around the world judged a total of 1542 cheeses.
Green Peppercorn Raclette was a big winner for Leelanau Cheese Co. taking a silver medal in Class 28b – Other hard pressed or repressed cows’ milk cheese with savoury additives. The mild Raclette was awarded a bronze medal in Class 51 – Semi-hard cheese not in any other class. Because each cheese is judged separately and graded on its own merit, no medals need be awarded, so to be judged medal-worthy at all is an honor.
Congratulations to John and Anne on bringing home the prizes.
