Just for Cheese Lovers



Several of you must know that cheese is my weakness, old, aged, smoked, soft, cream, the list goes on! I can never go back to processed cheese or mild tasting ones either. I relish in the sharp distinct taste some cheese hold and paired with the right wine or food, life is complete. But you may be asking, why all the cheese talk? Well I had the lovely opportunity to attend an event that was organized at Huff Estates to get an exclusive preview of this year's Great Canadian Cheese Festival, which is less than a month away! 

It started off by tasting a sparkling rosé..


The smoked gouda, cheese and wine expert Andrew Laliberté from Glen Echo Fine Foods, presented was one of my favorites...



Sampled 10-Year Aged Cheddar made by Maple Dale Cheese who are Grand Prix winners ...


From Prince Edward County Lavender, a totally unique herb for cooking... 


From Angelo Bean, artisan wine infused sausages you won't want to live without...


Among the other present were Chef Michael Hoy who presented the menu he had created for Wine & Dine at Huff Estates Winery, one of three off-site events that is being offered this year on Saturday evening of the Festival, the others being Gastronomy on the Farm with Jamie Kennedy and Cheese+Beer=Cheers at Acoustic Grill.

After this event, I got to experience the true taste of Prince Edward County with artisans rather than a conglomerate of mass producers. I realized that PEC is the destination for wine, cheese and food lovers. It is apparently one of "Canada's leading gastronomic destinations," which I now can attest to. With the amount of wineries in the region, it's quite impressive. The cheese festival that is to take place on June 1-2, will feature close to 100 exhibitors and vendors and more than 3000 consumers from coast to cost! This event is a great place to "meet, learn, taste and buy the best in artisan cheese and fine foods and sample wine, craft beer and crisp cider."

Hope to see you there!
