Celebrating American Cheese Month – Taste Off (Round 1): Coast vs Coast

October 2, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT


October… it’s one of the best months of the year. It’s a little less warm, football season is in full swing, Halloween is right around the corner, and, perhaps most importantly, it’s the time to celebrate the delicious diversity that cheesemakers all over North America provide to us cheese lovers. Yes, that’s right! October is American Cheese Month, and we are pulling out all the stops here at Antonelli’s. Join us this month as we pit the major regions of American cheese against each other in a taste-off series. Five percent of class ticket sales will go to the American Cheese Education Foundation (ACEF) which awards scholarships and supports educational opportunities for all those interested in making, selling, and appreciating North America’s artisan, farmstead, and specialty cheeses.

This tasting is Round 1 of our American Cheese Month Taste Off that will feature cheeses from the East Coast going up against the cheeses of the West Coast. Never before has there been a coast-to-coast rivalry like this one. We’ll taste through four rounds, for a total of 8 cheeses, accompanied by olives, nuts, and Easy Tiger bread. Come help us crown the best coast that will then go up against the winning region from our Round 2 tasting!
