One of the world's largest cheese competitions recently wrapped up, and a Wisconsin cheese maker won for best Parmesan.

America isn't generally known for its Parmesan cheese, but one Wisconsin cheese maker is proving all those assumptions wrong by winning the award for "Best Parmesan" for the third consecutive year.

Where Was The Cheese Championship?

The World Championship Cheese Contest was held in Madison, WI this year and had entries from 25 different countries that included over 3,000 entries of cheese, butter, yogurt, and a variety of other dairy products. The contest resulted in the release of the World's Top 20 Cheeses list, and two Wisconsin cheese makers landed on the list.
