2nd Annual Cheesemonger Invitational 2011! Hear all about it on Cutting the Curd TODAY from 4:30 to 5:00

Due to the fact that it’s summer, and due to the fact that the NFL is still on strike (that’s still happening, right?!) Saxelby Cheesemongers is here to satisfy all your lusting for super competitive, feats of strength-doing, sporting events.

That’s right friends… Tonight, on Cutting the Curd, we will be showcasing a preview of the toughest cheesemongering competition under the sun, the 2nd Annual Cheesemonger Invitational.

We’ll be talking with Adam Moskowitz, organizer and rabble-rouser behind said competition about all the trials and toils he’s got planned for the 40-plus mongers vying for the title of Cheesemonger of the Year. And, in an effort to do some training and get into top mongering shape, Anne of Saxelby
Cheesemongers and Brooke Little of Formaggio Essex will go toe-to-toe (hopefully not in any super-strenuous categories such as weight-lifting or sprinting) to test our pre-competition mettle.

How can you get a piece of the action? Listen to Cutting the Curd on the Heritage Radio Network tonight from 4:30 to 5:00!! Email your questions and suggestions for feats of strength for Brooke and myself to undertake to

Or, for the extremely hard core, you can buy tickets to this year’s Cheesemonger Invitational, to be held Friday, July 8th at a super-secret location in Long Island City.
