Jasper Hill Farm made this winner of the "Best of Show, 3rd" at the American Cheese Society's annual conference in 2015. I was commissioned to paint this by the American Cheese Society for their collection of Best in Show cheeses. The first time I painted it (for myself), I felt it needed a green background since it's named after the "grandmother of Vermont" and also I just cant think of Vermont without thinking the color green. I like to place Best of show winners in backgrounds that match the color of their awarded ribbon.

When I first unwrapped this wheel I loved that it had a bloomy rind that was snowflake white. I focused on that cool refreshing milky experience I would enjoy once I was finished. I basically cut the bark-wrapped wheel in half and did not even get to taste it until I was finished. That there was what we call motivation. Honestly, I could probably paint this cheese a hundred times without tiring of it.
