On October 20 the true ‘Rossiyskiy’ cheese of Vapnyarka TM will establish a new record of Ukraine. Skillful cookery specialists will make the longest cheese stick in the country out of this particular cheese! This momentous event will become the high point of the First National Cheese Festival organized at the initiative of Milk Producers Association of Ukraine.
According to festival organizers, the cheese stick – ‘record-holder’ will be 2 meters long. To make it, the official sponsor of the festival Vapnyarka TM will provide 16 kg of the true ‘Rossiyskiy’ cheese from INTER FOOD Company, which is one of the leading domestic cheese and butter producers, a part of TERRA FOOD Group of companies.
Skillful cookery specialists together with visitors of the festival will put together cheese blocks to form a single-piece stick. Then it will be dipped in original ‘batter’ with addition of porter and will be sunk in a tub with deep fat. As soon as the stick will be ready, the record will be documented by representatives of the Ukrainian Book of Records. Then all those wishing will be able to try a yummy treat with special sauce.
Also during two days of the festival supported by Vapnyarka TM fascinating cheese rolling will be carried out in ‘non-stop’ mode. The idea was inspired by more than 200-year-old tradition of rolling for a head of Gloucestershire cheese in England. The fastest and the most dexterous participant of each stage, who will be the first comer to the finish, will win a prize from Vapnyarka TM – a packing of ‘Rossiyskiy’ cheese.
