It’s Time for the Cheese Festival


Don’t forget the Seattle Cheese Festival is this weekend!  The primary activities are on both Saturday and Sunday:  cheese tasting; wine tasting; a scavenger hunt and chef demos. 

There are also several seminars you can attend.  I’m getting a jump on it all by taking a class on Friday with Chef Joseba Jiménez de Jiménez at his restaurant, Harvest Vine, which I am very excited about!  If you’ve never been to Harvest Vine put in on your list of places to go.  There’s also a movie at the Seattle Art Museum, The Cheese Nun, about Sister Noella Marcellino, who is an artisinal cheesemaker and an internationally known expert.  She’ll be leading a discussion at the completion of the movie.  

If you go make sure to check out all of our local producers who are really producing some gorgeous cheese! And, of course, this is your opportunity to try cheese from all over the world.  Just a little piece of advice – take a deep breath and just go with the flow.  It gets pretty packed, although I’m expecting them to have made improvements in traffic flow again this year.  Last year was much better than year one and I think this third year will see even more improvement.
