Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Festival
September 24, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$40
SEATTLE – The Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Festival showcases an array of farmstead cheeses made in Washington, and the event will feature two of the state’s top wineries – Lobo Hills and Purple Star.
Washington is home to nearly 70 cheesemakers, and this event serves as a fundraiser for the Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Association, a non-profit organization with a mission to support the state’s cheesemakers through education, promotion and collaboration.
Admission includes all cheese samples and three drink tickets. Beer tastes are one drink ticket each, and wine tastes are two drink tickets each. This event may sell out so advance purchase is recommended.
For an additional fee, there is the cheese seminar titled Old World meets New World – Washington’s New Traditions in Cheesemaking.
It will feature traditional European cheeses alongside those produced in Washington. What are the factors that affect the differences.
For an added understanding of how the Washington industry uses mobile cheese operations akin to those in Europe, there will be a tour of a mobile cheese truck from the Peterson Cheese Company. Cheese specialist Garrett Abel will moderate the tour during the seminar.
Cost to attend the seminar is $40 per person or $35 when purchased with a festival ticket. Ticket price includes cheese samples plus alcoholic beverage samples, and seminar will take 60-75 minutes.
