Shelburne, Vt. – May 24, 2013 – The Vermont Cheesemakers’ Festival will return to the
shores of Lake Champlain this summer to celebrate Vermont cheeses, artisan foods, craft
beers, local wines—and the people who make them. The 5th Annual Vermont
Cheesemakers’ Festival will be held on Sunday, July 21, 2013 at the Coach Barn at
Shelburne Farms from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
This year’s festival will feature over 200 cheeses from more than 40 cheesemakers, as
well as dozens of artisan food producers, and local beer, wine and spirits producers.
Tasting, pairing and sampling opportunities will be interspersed with cheesemaking and
cooking demonstrations, and workshops throughout the day.
“Our agricultural heritage has given rise to a diverse and growing community of
cheesemakers here in Vermont,” said Jeremy Stephenson, president of the Vermont
Cheese Council. “The Festival is a chance for people to connect with the farmers and
cheesemakers behind the cheeses they love, to discover new cheeses, and of course to
reconnect with old favorites.”
This year’s “Meet the Cheesemakers” workshop series will be free with the price of
admission, and offered on a first come, first serve basis. Murray’s Cheese will share their
“Counter Intelligence” with a workshop on affinage and the cave-aging process. The
cheesemakers behind Vermont’s well-loved cheddars will present “Cheddar is a Verb,” a
workshop devoted to understanding what makes a great cheddar. “Cheese Through the
Seasons” will delve into cheese seasonality and the subtle variations that result from the
changing Vermont landscape.
Two cooking demonstrations will also be offered free with admission– “Creative Cheese
Boards” with Chef Sean Buchanan of Black River Produce and “Beyond Fondue:
Cooking with Cheese” with Chef David Hugo of Shelburne Farms.

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
