2006 World Championship Cheese Contest Winners!

Today was the final day of the 2006 World Championship Cheese Contest held in Madison, Wisconsin by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association. The Grand Prize went to a Swiss Emmentaler made by Walo von Muhlenen, while the two runners-up hailed from the Netherlands.

There were also lots of specific categories, each of which had its own winner. Vermont's own Cabot cheese won Best in Class awards for its Mild and Sharp Cheddars, and Old Chatham Sheepherding Company won Best of Class in the Mixed Milks category for their Hudson Valley Camembert.
