World Championship Cheese Contest Underway In Wisconsin


Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. The World Championship Cheese Contest is underway in Madison, Wisc. Local cheesemongers bring the funk against international challengers. Best noses in the business serve as judges.


UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: Smelling some sour and beefy notes.

MARTIN: It's billed as the biggest cheese competition in the world. A French sheep's milk cheese won last time. One judge said, when you smell the cheese, it kind of whispers its secrets to you. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
