This year’s World Cheese Awards played host to some of the most delicious, diverse cheeses available from top producers and suppliers around the globe, but one blue cheese stood out among them all.
Salemville’s Reserve Blue won the Super Gold award during the event, making it one of the 62 top ranked cheeses in the world.
Renowned for its earthy flavor and rich, creamy texture, this extra-aged blue cheese goes through an extended aging process to fully optimize its taste profile, according to a press release. Select retailers carry this award-winning cheese in 4-ounce crumble cups and 4-ounce wedges.
The World Cheese Awards, now in its 28th year, is organized by the Guild of Fine Food and took place at the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham, UK. A panel of 250 cheese experts gathered from around the world, including Italy, France, Australia, Japan, and the USA, to judge over 2,700 entries with 62 of the world’s best cheeses selected for Super Gold awards.
Several other Saputo Specialty cheeses received awards as well during the event, including…
