Saxelby Cheesemongers to Attend American Cheese Society in Burlington, Vermont.
This week is a big week for cheese nerds across the nation. The American Cheese Society, venerable cheese institution that it is, is holding its annual conference and cheese competition in Burlington, Vermont. This year is the biggest year in ACS history, both in terms of people attending and cheeses entered in the contest. Over 1200 cheeses from hundreds of American dairies will be tasted, analyzed and judged by an international panel of cheese gurus. We believe that it is our noble cheesly duty to attend. And eat.
So, Saxelby Cheesemongers is taking a little hiatus to attend the conference. We will be closed from 3:00 pm on Wednesday, August 1st to Saturday, August 4th. We’ll be doing LOTS of tasting, and don’t you worry, we’ll be bringing some of our favorite cheese finds home to Essex Market to share with you.
For those of you hungry for more details on this strange and wonderful phenomenon in the wild world of cheese, check out the ACS website at
Stay tuned next week for a post-ACS update and new additions to our ranks of fromage!
