In the span of a year, it’s no contest to say where the best cheeses in the U.S. will be.

They’ll be in Wisconsin, if only for a few days.

The American Cheese Society’s contest this week is one of three that will be in the state within a year. All are the major contests in the U.S.

The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association hosts the other two — the World Championship Cheese Contest in even-numbered years at Monona Terrace, the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest in Green Bay in odd-numbered years.

The contests differ in their approach.

“Our contest dates to the days of cheese grading, so it’s all technical,” said John Umhoefer, executive director of the WCMA. “We assume a cheese is perfect, then we look for defects. It’s kind of like a figure skating competition.”

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.
