US Cheesemakers Plan Charm Offensive in UK
Cheesemakers in the US are determined to show their counterparts across the pond they're worthy contenders. Americans cleaned up with a record amount of awards at the recent World Cheese Awards in the UK, but only a small amount of US cheeses are currently being exported to Great Britain and beyond. Artisan Cheese Exchange is determined to change that.
Neal's Yard Dairy currently stocks Uplands Cheese's Pleasant Ridge Reserve as well as Rogue Creamery's Rogue River Blue. The company was also considering selling cheese from Vermont producer The Cellars at Jasper Hill, said manager for buying and quality, Bronwen Percival. "More and more US cheeses are world class," she said. "They really hold their own against European cheeses."
