Good Cheese Magazine: Land of the Rising Raclette?

The Geography of Cheese was honored with a place on this year’s cover of “Good Cheese”, the annual magazine published by the UK-based Guild of Fine Food in conjunction with the World Cheese Awards. This year’s competition was in Bergen, Norway from November 1st-3rd, where 235 international judges chose 1 winner from over 3000 cheeses.

While Japanese cheeses weren’t entered in the competition, there’s a growing understanding that good cheese doesn’t have to come from countries with centuries of cheesemaking traditions. In fact, Japan is proving quite the opposite.

Keep an eye on the rising sun that is Japanese cheese. For now, excuse us while we go celebrate with overflowing sake cups and sakura-blossom crowned cheeses!
