Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese Wins Best of Show at Dodge County Fair

 

Waterloo, WI, September 8, 2015—Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese took home Best of Show honors in the Dodge County Fair Cheese Judging for its Marinated Fresh Mozzarella Balls. The cheese also won first place in the Flavored Natural Cheese category in the open class category at Dodge County Fair, Beaver Dam, WI.

The winning Marinated Ciliegine (cherry size) is a Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella specialty, marinated in a blend of olive oil and canola oil, with a signature spice mix. Serve it as an antipasto, add it to pasta salads, or enjoy it with olives and sliced tomatoes. Fresh Mozzarella is also available in Perline (pearl size), Bocconcini (ball size), Ovoline (egg size), Medallions, 8 oz. balls, 1-pound balls, and 1-pound logs. All told, Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella varieties have earned more than 21 awards for excellence.

In addition to receiving honors for Fresh Mozzarella, Crave Brothers Mascarpone won first place in the open class category.  This luxurious cheese, made from fresh, sweet cream, has been honored with more than 26 awards since it was introduced. The rich flavor and velvety texture make it an ideal ingredient to stir into soups, pair with berries or honey, add to pasta dishes or create memorable desserts such as Mascarpone Truffles and Chocolate Mascarpone Pie.

 

 

Also at the Dodge County Fair, Crave Brothers Farmer’s Rope String Cheese received its 24th award—a second-place prize in the Italian Cheese, Pasta Filata category. This handmade deli string cheese is characterized by its fresh flavor, and is an ideal choice for melting, shredding and snacking. Serve it with fresh fruits and vegetables, or pair it with Pilsner or sparkling apple cider for autumn get-togethers.
