Madison welcomes the 2014 World Championship Cheese Contest.
Wisconsin Cheese Makers Executive Director John Umhoefer says it’ll be very competitive. “They come from all over the world, 22 countries. Name a European country and they’re in; from Croatia to France to Finland to Italy … all the big cheese producers and the wannabees, you might say; and then you see cheese from Japan, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, all over the world.”

The contest runs Tuesday and Wednesday at Monona Terrace.
