Lyre d'Or Competition

Published on by Isabelle FABRE - updated on

The Lyre d’Or Competition organised by the Ile-de-France union of cheesemongers took place on Sunday 26th February from 1 pm to 5 pm. 

An unmissable event at the show! The 6th edition of this competition pitted 16 contestants against one another with a highly original theme: weddings! This competition rewarded the expertise of cheese-dairy professionals in coming up with and producing a cheese platter.

Although know-how is important, candidates must also remember to comply with rules on hygiene and creativity. The judges enjoyed contemplating the whole range of expertise of cheese/dairy professionals. Technique and the ability to keep in mind the nature of the situation for which the platter is to be produced are extremely important. They were judged on the choice and quality of the cheeses, technique, aesthetics, their juxtaposition of cheeses and hygiene.
