Wisconsin Cheese Externship for Culinary Instructors & Students: August 16-19, 2017

27 April 2017

Does one of your top students have a love for all things dairy…especially cheese…and a hunger to learn more about cheese making, storage, handling and culinary functionality? If so, this could be the trip of a lifetime! Emmi Roth USA and the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board are offering a Wisconsin Cheese Externship specifically for postsecondary culinary instructors and their students. Team up with a student to create a recipe showcasing a Roth® or Wisconsin cheese, and both of you could win a 5 day/4 night trip to Wisconsin for an artisan and specialty cheese immersion tour.

Externs arrive Tuesday, August 16th; depart on Saturday, August 19th.

The Externship Experience: Three lucky team winners (team = one student and one instructor) will be transported to Monroe, WI, for a cheesemaking deep dive and hands on cheese functionality session with the award-winning cheesemakers and corporate chefs at Emmi Roth USA. From there, they will visit additional local cheese makers, a dairy farm, enjoy area restaurants and finish with a visit to the Dane County Farmer’s Market, the largest producer only market in the country. 

All meals and lodging plus air fare and tour transportation are covered for attendees. Separate rooms for the winners (instructors and students) will be provided. 

The Rules:

  • Contest is open to (U.S. 48 contiguous states) postsecondary instructors and their students; 3 spots are available (one spot = one instructor and one student). You must submit a creative recipe that highlights a Roth® or other Wisconsin cheese variety (samples available, details below). 
  • You must submit your original recipe no later than Tuesday, May 30th. Participants will be notified if they are chosen for the Externship on or before June 15th. You must also submit full contact information for both the instructor and the student. This includes name, mailing address, telephone number and email.
