Join IZZE for the 2nd Annual Cheesemonger Invitational in NYC on Friday, July 8th!

July 8, 2011

LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK — The Cheesemonger Invitational is the ultimate party for cheese lovers and lovers of cheese. It is an all you can eat affair where Chef Fromager Tia Keenan will dare to create a unique, mind blowing, cheese-based smorgasbord of food unlike anything we have seen or tasted before.

The main event of the evening is Cheese-O-Mania. Some of the best cheese shops in the Milky Way will be endorsing their finest mongers to compete in a no-holds barred cheese battle extravaganza. That’s right, a cheese battle extravaganza. Forty mongers will begin, only one monger can win. Think Fight Club meets the Olympics for CHEESE.

Cheese-O-Mania features 4 rounds of competition: 1) tasting; 2) cutting & wrapping; 3) plating; 4) pairing cheese. The top ten mongers will split a prize purse valued at $10,000. Because we believe in supporting cheesemongers and the cheese shops that promote them, 5% of the event’s profit will be donated to the ACS Fromager Certification Program.

Ultimately, we will be celebrating coddled curd by dancing the night away with a belly fully of cheese, surrounded by lovers of cheese with music provided by deejays whose day job is cheese. It is going to be cheesy. Libations provided by Sixpoint Brewery and of course IZZE Sparkling Juice will be provided for all attendees. MUST BE 21 YEARS OF AGE TO ATTEND EVENT.
