to honor and inspire cheesemongers
What happens when we take the best cheesemongers from around the country and put them in one room?
We honor them by putting them center stage in a unique competition that showcases their technical skills, encyclopedic knowledge, and passionate salesmanship. We inspire them through educational workshops led by the best cheesemakers in the world. And then we throw one hell of a party to celebrate the finalists, watch them compete on stage, and crown one them as the best cheesemonger in the country.
Trust us when we say that this party is like no party you’ve ever attended. This is a have-to-be-there, FOMO-inducing, adrenaline-pumping cheesesplosion. Expect rabid fans. Expect things to get weird. Expect a lot of cheese — like, whatever you’re imagining? Imagine more. You honestly haven’t lived until you’ve cheered at the top of your lungs (with a mouth full of brie) for someone to cut a perfect quarter pound of cheddar on a stage in front of hundreds of like minded weirdos.
