Connecticut Cheese Festival 2013
Foodies, grilled cheese connoisseurs, artisanal cheese passionistas, and cheese lovers of every age and persuasion have cause to celebrate this fall. Featuring demos, tastings, classes, cheese pairing tours, a cheese rolling contest and more, “Curd is the word on October 13th,” says Brian Civitello, founder of Mystic Cheese Company and event co-host.
“Connecticut has a rich dairying and cheese making history, and is experiencing a revival in cheese making culture,” Civitello continued. “With a plethora of luscious lactic diversity emerging from our local pastures, there’s no doubt in my mind that over the next few years Connecticut will prove itself to be on the forefront of the American Artisan Cheese Revolution. So come to the Cheese Festival and get in on the cutting edge, immerse yourself in Connecticut Cheese Culture!”
