SLCC and UEN host “Cheese Challenge”

In celebration of American Artisan Cheese Month, Salt Lake Community College and Utah Education Network are hosting “Cheese Challenge” on October 28 at SLCC’s Center for Arts and Media.

Participants are asked to prepare two pounds of two different cheeses and then present their creations for technical and aesthetic judging. Representatives from Harmons Grocery, Utah State Office of Education, Beehive Cheese and the Utah Dairy Council will act as judges.

The public is invited to this free event to witness the presentations and judging, followed by a cheese tasting for everyone. There will also be a short film about the science of cheese making. Judging and tasting will take place in the Multipurpose Room at South City Campus, 1575 South State Street, Salt Lake City.

Judging starts at 6 p.m., followed by a film, student presentations of cheeses, judges’ comments, awards and, at 7:45 p.m., a public cheese tasting.
