The 2015 American Cheese Society Conference & Competition kicks off in Providence, Rhode Island, tonight. Yours truly will be reporting live via the usual places (twitter – instagram – facebook) but I had to share a very important PSA for any readers in the area — Murray’s Cheese has brought a mobile cheese truck to town! Follow them #mongeronwheels on Twitter to find out their location each day, now through this Sunday.
Local cheese heads can also purchase tickets to the Festival of Cheese on Saturday evening, 8/1 at 7pm at the Rhode Island Convention Center, to sample around 1,800 cheeses entered in this year’s competition. Get your tickets here.* And, there is a great big cheese sale on Sunday, 11am – 2pm, in the Convention Center West Lobby. Visit the ACS website for more details about this year’s conference and stay tuned to meet this year’s winners!
* Any Providence readers out there? I have one free ticket to the Festival of Cheese for the first person to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
