MADISON, Wis. – Tickets to Wisconsin Cheese Camp, a two-day cheese festival featuring bus tours, a Wisconsin Cheddar dinner, a tasting seminar and Meet the Cheesemaker Gala, go on sale to the public Oct. 3.

Wisconsin Cheese Camp takes place Nov. 4-5 at The Edgewater in Madison and is hosted by Jeanne Carpenter, of Wisconsin Cheese Originals. Attendees will meet 30 Wisconsin artisan cheesemakers and taste 150 cheeses, tour Wisconsin cheese factories, enjoy a dinner highlighting aged Cheddars and learn the latest science about “taste of place.” 

“This is a great way for cheese lovers to meet the people who make their favorite cheese,” Carpenter said.

Wisconsin Cheese Camp is sponsored by Carr Valley Cheese. Cheddars crafted by Master Cheesemaker Sid Cook and a variety of Wisconsin cheesemakers will be featured in the Saturday night Wisconsin Cheddar dinner at The Edgewater. Author Gordon Edgar, cheese buyer for Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco, will be the keynote speaker, and all dinner attendees will receive a complimentary copy of his book: Cheddar: A Journey to the Heart of America’s Most Iconic Cheese.

On Sunday, a cheese tasting seminar on Taste of Place will be presented by Uplands Cheesemaker Andy Hatch and Bronwen and Francis Percival, authors of the new book: Reinventing the Wheel: Milk, Microbes, and the Fight for Real Cheese.
