Annual Big Cheese Cut in Victoria This Weekend

Ottavio Bakery & Delicatessen Victoria BCYeah, cheese is fun to eat and all of that...but cheese rises to the level of spectator sport this weekend in Victoria, BC. There, the brave folks at Ottavio Italian Bakery & Delicatessen will be holding The Big Cheese Cut! This annual event combines all of the best aspects of pro wrestling, weightlifting and cheesemongering in one big cheese-cutting extravaganza. Brave and courageous cheese aficionados will tackle a 30lb English Stilton as a warm up, then progress to a 60lb Parmigiano-Reggiano, a 75lb Provolone Piccante and a 95lb French Comte....culminating with a 225lb Swiss Emmental.  Join in the fun on Saturday April 21st from 11am-1pm.
