Last week, The Guild of Fine Food held its annual World’s Best Cheese Awards, naming Cornish Kern the World’s Best Cheese for 2017. A complete list of all the Winners from Super Golds to Gold to Silver to Bronze can be viewed here.
I thought it might be fun to revisit reviews of winners I have posted in the past. Obviously, my reviews are not the same batches that garnered wins in 2017 but so many of the winners have passed through the portals of this website.
Congratulations to all the winners!!
Super Gold Winners:
Sartori Gold BellaVitano – one of my early reviews and a cheese that I continue to love. You can read Spaulding Gray’s interview with Sartori Owner, Jim Sartori here.
Point Reyes Bay Blue. I first tasted Bay Blue in 2014 just a week before it was named one of the 3 Best of Show cheeses at the annual ACS Cheese Competition.
Coupole also from our friends at Vermont Creamery.
