World Cheese Awards

The World Cheese Awards are held by The Guild of Fine Food in the UK. They are held in conjunction with the BBC Good Food Show.  This year’s awards are underway now, Nov 24 – 28, with the judging having taken place place yesterday (Nov 24).

What makes these awards different to most cheese shows is that judging takes place in front of live audience. Most cheese judging is conducted separate to any other event and in controlled circumstances (temperature, noise, odour) to ensure that judges can concentrate on the cheese.

After the first round of judging the gold medal cheeses are judged again by another team of judges. These are then judged by a 12 person Supreme Jury to determine the World Champion cheese.

Although I have not seen the full list of 2010 awards, The Guardian newspaper has an article today on The Cornish Cheese Company’s win with Cornish Blue.
