3rd Annual Sustainable Business Travel Summit
Cheese Oscars? Cheese Olympics? Call it what you like ” the official title is the World Cheese Awards ” the big news is that this year”s bonanza takes place in Ireland, the first time in the competition”s 20-year history that the globe”s A-list cheeses will roll down the red carpet outside of the UK (is France too obvious? Switzerland?).
Anyhow, Dubliners should be warned that more than 2,000 contenders from around the world ” there are Australasian entrants, sure to be ultra-competitive - will arrive for the awards on the 29 September at the RDS Simmonscourt (just follow your nose).
”The Awards have become the cheese Olympics [that answers that] so it is right they should be staged in different countries,” said event chairman and national director of the Guild of Fine Food, Bob Farrand.
Cheese tasting by the ”Supreme Jury” will be filmed for TV, so those who can”t attend can find out if this joins the ranks of all those more obscure Olympic events - curling comes to mind - which turn out to be improbably compulsive spectator sports, certainly for students.
So, Perth 2009? Any chance to beat Australia in their own back yard”though you just know they”d probably pull out some impossibly stinky winner.
