Cheese Awards 

Side Dishes: Vermonters Get Kudos for Curds

Each summer, the American Cheese Society shells out "best of" prizes in more categories than the average mozzarella muncher can imagine: For example, there's an award for "cheeses flavored with peppers (sweet, savory, jalapeños, chipotles, etc.), mustard, olives, wasabi, onion, garlic or spice." What a mouthful!

This year, as always, Vermont creameries went away with numerous accolades, including 33 first-, second- and third-place ribbons. Cabot Creamery Cooperative and Vermont Butter & Cheese Co. were big winners, as always, but a few smaller producers, such as the folks from Consider Bardwell Farm of West Pawlet, were also recognized. See the Omnivore blog for a complete list of winners.
