While my favorite seminar was Cheese Essentials hosted by Laura Werlin, there were plenty of other fabulous things to savor at the Artisan Cheese Festival. The ladies of Cowgirl Creamery talked about how the environment and animal raising practices affect a cheese's flavor. Sommelier Christie Dufault discussed the best ways to pair cheese with wine. Then, there was the cheese! Over thirty cheesemakers participated in the grand tasting making for a weekend that was creamy, salty, tangy, and purely delicious.
Words can't describe how wonderful this event was, so check out all my pictures! For the large gallery of the festival, read more.
