Picton festival to present winners of inaugural Canadian Cheese Awards

  • Print

PICTON, Ont. - What organizers are calling "the biggest cheese show in Canada" will spread out across Picton, Ont., on June 7-8.

More than 100 booths will be set up at various locations for the fourth edition of the Great Canadian Cheese Festival, with more than 125 different cheeses offered for sampling or purchase.

Consumers can try out most of the 30 winners at last month's inaugural Canadian Cheese Awards, including the semi-soft Le Baluchon (made by Fromagerie F.X. Pichet of Ste-Anne-de-la-P�rade, Que.), which was voted Cheese of the Year.

Artisan food producers, small-batch wineries and craft breweries will also be among the exhibitors.

As well, VQA wines will be available for purchase on site, by the bottle or case, as part of a pilot project initiated by the Ontario government to promote locally grown wines.
