Norbert Wabnig, proprietor of The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, has announced the winners of his Fifth Annual American Artisanal Treasure Awards. The American Artisanal Treasure Awards was created by Wabnig to honor producers of handmade specialty foods across the United States.
"For decades, The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills has been known for carrying rare and hard to find artisanal foods and gourmet goodies, long before the current wave of interest in artisanal products. The American Artisanal Treasure Awards is my way of saying thank you to these fine artisans, many of whom are pioneers in their category," Wabnig says.
The theme for the 2008 American Artisanal Treasure Awards is "Green," as in Green Grocer. The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills sent out a call for submissions to the American Federation of Certified Farmer's Markets in California. The products were judged on May 29, 2008 by an esteemed panel of experts including Kit Rachlis, Editor-In-Chief, Los Angeles Magazine; Carolynn Spence, Executive Chef, Bar Marmont; Amy Albert, Senior Editor, Bon Appetit Magazine; Hans Goplen, Executive Chef, The Farm of Beverly Hills; Barbara Brass, West Coast Regional Director of Sales, Wolfgang Puck Catering; Suzanne Arros, Catering Coordinator, Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel; and John Laroquette, Actor/Celebrity Foodie.
