NW Creameries Cut the Cheese and Take Home the Prize

Here's another take on the localvore scene; local cheese scored big at the national cheese competition. Huzzah for Estrella Family Creamery, a regular at my neighborhood farmers' market! They won with their first place - Smoked Italian Style Cheese - Weebles (Natural Alder Smoke) entry.

The results are in and Northwest cheesemakers scored 30 awards at the American Cheese Society Competition this year. This is quite a showing and represents an improvement over last year,  where local cheeses won a total of 21 awards. I've listed the results below - to view the full judging brochure with all categories and winners, see here.  Congratulations to all!
