The World Cheese Awards 2018

I’m about to pack my bags as we head off to Bergen, Norway, for the World Cheese Awards now entering it’s 31st year. A record-breaking number of cheeses from every corner of the globe are expected to line up in the judging hall at Bergen’s Grieghallen on 2 November 2018.

Kraftkar, a Norwegian Blue Cheese was voted the Supreme Champion 2 years ago when the awards were held in San Sebastian in the Basque country & the Norwegians have volunteered to stage this year’s awards. I’ll be hosting World Cheese TV (I kid you not!) on Friday 2nd November, alongside the fabulous Jo Pickard, so go online & track us down. Here's the link to the World Cheese Awards web page, where WCA TV will be streamed www.gff.co.uk/wca

Here are some pics from the previous couple of years…
