But none of these things are actually the point of this post.
For the first time ever, I'm announcing a blog event and it involves one of my favourite products - cheese.
For this event, I'm not asking you to cook anything - just post about and photograph your favourite cheese - while it can't be one you make yourself it can certainly be from the smallest or most obscure dairy you can find. Be it Blue, Washed Rind, Cheddar, Feta, Ricotta, Goat, Cow or Yak's milk, you are more than welcome to post about it. Having said that, please no Cheese whiz or similar "plastic cheese"... yes I'm looking at you Kraft Singles.
You'll have all of July to find, photograph and post about your favourite cheese and every entry will be in the draw to win this utterly priceless (it's not for sale) and rare copy (it's the only copy) of my very own photo book
Say Cheese is a little book I put together from photos taken at Slow Cheese and from the cheese postings on this site - if you love Cheese than I hope you enjoy this book.
Every entry has an equal chance of winning - all names will go into some kind of receptacle and Paalo will do the honours and pull out the winner.
To recap the details:
Post about your favourite cheese by July 31st
and send an email with Say Cheese in the subject line to:
- Your name
- Your Blog Name/URL
- Your Post URL
- the Cheese Name with Country of Origin
- attach a photo - 250px wide
- and please include a link to this announcement post to help me keep track of posts.
The recap, or would it be more like a cheese board, will appear at the beginning of August and the winner announced.
