By the time the cheese contest rolled around, I was too stuffed to even consider trying the cheese.
So I wrapped the whole plate, and today I shared it with my sister and her husband. I had already looked at the answer sheet, but I made them guess.
They didn't fare any better than the rest of the cheese contest participants, although with some hints Sis got the Wensleydale and Bro-in-law correctly described a couple of them, even though he couldn't name them.
Then we all dug in and ate most of it for lunch -- since we had some left over (except for the decadently delicious triple creme, which we polished off), I think it was safe to say each plate served four. Fortunately, I had my cholesterol checked last week, not this coming one (g).
All three of us were impressed by both the quality and the generosity of the offerings -- there had to have been at least $25 retail of cheese on each plate.
So we would all like to thank everyone who made the cheese plates possible: both the donors and the organizers.
