Is Seattle the “Big Cheese”?

Kurt Dammeier, the big cheese from Beecher’s (among local food ventures old and new) sent news announcing the American Cheese Society is holding its 27th annual conference a year from now. Oh, and by the way, he said: last week at the 2009 cheese conference in Austin, 1,327 cheeses were entered in the annual competition and five out of six Beecher’s entries were flagged as winners.

As co-chair of next year’s event, the not-so-stinky-cheese man wants me (and by “me” he means “you”) to know the public’s invited to the “Cheese Oscars” at Benaroya Hall during the four-day shindig on August 28, 2010. (Way to keep ahead of the “save the date”-curve Kurt!) That’s when 1000 paid-up ticket-holders can stroll the red carpet leading to “a food, wine and cheese extravaganza,” said Dammeier, who’s talking 1300 cheeses — one of which, I hope, is the Willapa Hills Ewe Moon I ate for lunch today along with a can of Roland’s spicy octopus with vegetables ($2.25 at Big John’s PFI). So, is Seattle the nation’s “Big Cheese”? Dammeier thinks so, as he explains with this fun video-postcard from our fair city. What do you think?
