The Great Canadian Cheese Festival

Some friendships form in unavoidable ways. Your paths cross often and interests overlap to a point that you become friends seamlessly. That was the case with Linda. We met through Instagram but unlike the typical friendships you form online, we actually met in person and continued to run into each other during countless food and film events. As a result, you might have seen her and her blog, The Starving Foodie pop up in this space. Linda have also taken me under her wing, lots of new experiences and opportunities are possible because of her invites and guidance. 

A few weeks ago, Linda told me about The Great Canadian Cheese Festival that took place in Prince Edward County.

With invites in hand and cravings of cheese, we set off on our first foodies road trip together.

The ideal accompaniments to cheese, cured meats.

Our time at the festival ends as the event ends pretty early, but that left us plenty of time to explore other parts of the county. Stay tuned for more on Prince Edward County.
