This month, we’re on a mission to give away copies of our new book, The Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese, to 48 cheese lovers around the United States. We’re calling it the “United States of Cheese Plates Giveaway.”
To enter, all you have to do is create a cheese plate that represents your state – using local ingredients. Check out our entry guidelines below. If you win, you’ll receive a signed copy of our new book!
To enter your state cheese plate in our giveaway:
Photographs from our winners will be showcased this fall.
Tips to get started: Visit a local farmers’ market for ideas. Ask about local cheeses at the cheese counter where you shop. To develop a pairing, visit a roadside produce stand, look to your garden, investigate local honey, consider indigenous ingredients (fruit, nuts, herbs, grains) or iconic prepared foods (Alligator jerky? Sorghum syrup?). Imagine: If a gaggle of cheese freaks were to visit your state, what would you serve them?
Tips for photography: Try to shoot a photo of your cheese board in natural light. You can use your camera phone, no biggie. If you want to be in your photo or have your friends’n fam in the photo, awesome!
