In 2013, Ontario’s Margaret Peters Morris woke the world to Canadian cheese when her aged Lankaaster won Supreme Global Champion at the Global Cheese Awards. This month her Celtic Blue Reserve stormed the 2015 American Cheese Society Awards to emerge as the best in show winner among 1,779 entries in 109 categories.

Irked that Quebec had been dominating the competitive Canadian category, and certain she had the makings of an award winner in her Celtic Blue Cheese, Peters Morris (owner of Glengarry Fine Cheese in Lancaster, Ont.) and cheese maker Wilma Klein-Swormink tweaked the original recipe. The result: Celtic Blue Reserve.

It’s the first time in the 30-year history of the esteemed ACS competition that best in show has gone to a Canadian cheese. While the win at the Global Cheese Awards carries prestige (the competition includes such classics as Parmigiano-Reggiano), in North America the Society awards are the Oscars of the cheese world. A Canadian cheese taking top prize is like a foreign film winning Best Picture.
