Shameless plug for The Great Canadian Cheese Festival


The video was shot during a media event at Fifth Town Artisan Cheese for the upcoming Great Canadian Cheese Festival by Crowe Productions.

As you can see in the clip, it was a mighty breezy day in Prince Edward County which did not deter representatives of Quinte region media outlets from sampling artisan cheeses from Fromagerie du Presbytere, 110-year-old Black River Cheese and Fifth Town Artisan Cheese, wine from Harwood Estates Vineyards & Winery, beer from Barley Days Brewery and an amazing dish prepared by Chef Andreas Feller of Blumen Garden Bistro using Fifth Town cheese.

Mayor Peter Mertens of Prince Edward County welcomed the Festival to the County. Festival director Georgs Kolesnikovs praised the Invest in Cheese initiative for opening his eyes to the rich history of cheese in Eastern Ontario and leading him to base the Festival in the County, specifically at historic Crystal Palace in Picton.

Here are some of the stories that made the news after the press briefing:
