This Sunday, June 29th Zabar's own Marie Colas will compete again in the Cheesemonger Invitational!
Cheesemonger Invitational: An Epic Battle of Monger versus Monger!
The judging starts early, Doors open to the public at 5 PM
Visit Long Island City, NYC for amazing cheese creations, meet cheese experts from near and far, taste something new and enjoy all the cheese you can eat!
I've asked and Marie's not ready to share any of her new creations before she gets them in front of the judges, but from what I hear she's going to wow them!
The cheesemonger challenges:
A test, a 30 question test all about cheese
Cut the exact weight of cheese requested - that's it, not so easy
Give a sales pitch - show off how you help customers find the perfect cheese
A cheese bite creation - your recipe
Taste and tell - how well can you blind taste and identify cheeses
A perfectly wrapped cheese
A great cheese sign
