With spring fast approaching and the ACS Judging & Competition (J&C) Call for Entries just around the corner, the J&C Committee and a renowned team of judges are gearing up for another exciting year of evaluating your cheese and cultured dairy products. Join us for an in-depth look at the 2015 Category changes with a particular focus on the exciting changes to Category T (Washed Rind Cheese), an explanation of why the categories change each year, and what it takes to create and enter an American Original.
John Greeley, ACS Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and founding member of the ACS Judging & Competition, shares the history of how competition categories are created and reviewed each year. John is joined by Tom Kooiman, ACS Judging & Competition Chair, and Dr. Stephanie Clark, ACS Judging & Competition Technical Advisor, to help answer questions throughout the webinar.
