Tonight’s the night! The winners in the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix will be announced at a Gala of Champions in Toronto this evening.
I’m aiming to provide a live news feed on Twitter starting soon after six o’clock and continuing until the Grand Champion is named.
The reason there’s so much excitement around here about the Grand Prix is that the winners will presented at The Great Canadian Cheese Festival upcoming on June 4-5. It will be the first opportunity for cheese lovers to taste the winning cheeses in one place at one time.
During the Artisan Cheese & Fine Food Fair on Festival Sunday (June 5), Deborah Levy of Dairy Farmers of Canada will lead a tutored tasting of the winners. They’ll also be featured the Cooks & Curds Cheese Gala on Festival Saturday (June 4).

Georgs Kolesnikovs, cheesehead-in-chief at CheeseLover.ca, is the founder and director of The Great Canadian Cheese Festival.
