ACS 2013: Connecting with Wisconsin Cheesemakers
This year, the American Cheese Society Conference and Awards are in Madison, Wisconsin. To prep, get to know three local cheesemakers up for pristegous awards: Andy Hatch, Marieke Penterman, and Sid Cook. Good luck to all!
Currently decorated with many nationally recognized achievements, these cheesemakers are true to the Wisconsin Cheese motto “Outdo Ordinary.” Andy Hatch and Uplands Cheese’s Pleasant Ridge Reserve won the American Cheese Society’s 2010 Best in Show; Sid Cook and Carr Valley’s Caved Aged Marisa won Best in Class in 2013; and, most recently, Marieke Penterman and Holland’s Family Cheese’s Marieke Foenegreek Gouda won the 2013 U.S. Cheese Championship Contest this past March.
