Cheese lovers - rejoice! This Saturday, October 6th, the Oregon Cheese Guild presents the annual ever-popular Wedge Festival in Portland. Join dozens of cheesemakers from around the region in this farmers market style event. Taste, sample, savor local cheeses you've come to know and love, including those from Willamette Valley Cheese Co., Rivers Edge Chèvre and Briar Rose Creamery. And if that isn't enough cheese for you, not to worry, festival sponsor Rogue Ales is promising a Grilled Cheese Bar in which you can choose from among a variety of locally produced artisan cheeses to stick between slices of bread.
In addition to the cheese, several seminars are planned, including Beer and Cheese (11am), Northwest Cheese 101 (1pm), and Complementing Your Cheese (3pm), each hosted by Amanda Parker of Murray's Cheese. Seminar tickets are $10/each and can be purchased online here.
