Leelanau Cheese Raclette – Best in North America!

Raclette wheels from Leelanau Cheese!It’s not often (OK, never) that one of my favorite foods gets an honor like the honor that the Aged Raclette from the Suttons Bay-based Leelanau Cheese Company received. In the largest cheese competition in U.S. history, their raclette beat bested over 1,200 entries to take the “Best of Show” award  at the 24th annual American Cheese Society cheese competition. To add to the honor, they received a rare perfect score on the first round of judging.

You can visit the John & Anne Hoyt and purchase and sample their additive-free Swiss and French-style cheeses on M-22 south of Suttons Bay.

    I had received some Raclette as a gift once. I consider myself more than just a cheese lover, and the Raclette is the closest thing to perfect cheese I can recall. Excellent product.
