You think you know your raw milks and Pecorino Romanos? Sorry to break it to you, but your cheese knowledge probably pales in comparison to some of the cheese freaks that show up to what has been dubbed "The Olympics meets Fight Club. For cheese." Yes it's the Cheesmonger Invitational, and you should go because even though you might not be a monger on the level of some of the other folks, at least you can sample all you want from the best cheese and salumi makers, picklers, honey gatherers and olive curers in the world, plus get your fill of craft beer and plenty of wine. Seriously, who knew heaven was in Long Island City?
