On June 26th some of the most important people in the specialty cheese business will congregate at a discreet warehouse in Long Island City to witness the first annual Cheesemonger Invitational. Nine of the top cheesemongers representing the finest cheese shops from around our country are set to compete in a no-holds barred cornucopia of coddled curd.
This event is a celebration of all things cheese bringing together mongers of every type and their like. The people behind the Invitational believe everyone in the supply chain: maker, affineur, exporter, importer, distributor and retailer are all mongers. In fact, the best cheesemongers often perform more than one role in the supply chain. The Cheesemonger Invitational welcomes these taste makers to share their passion and their practices.
