This week three of our staff members, including Rebeccah Durkin, from Brazos Valley Cheese are attending the 27th annual American Cheese Society Conference, Judging & Competition in Montreal, Canada. Last year the conference took place in Seattle and we won our first two awards for our specialty Brie cheeses, Eden and Brazos Select.
This year we entered 10 of our cheeses and await the results which will be announced at an awards ceremony on Friday night. Saturday night includes a festival of cheese in which the 1,676 entries from all over North America will be displayed for sampling.
We look forward to the educational aspect of the event and networking with artisan cheesemakers from around the world.
