Vermont’s Jasper Hill wins ‘Tastie’ cheese award

first_imgThe October issue of Cooking Light (www.CookingLight.com(link is external)) features the brand’s first-ever Taste Test Awards ‘ “The Tasties.” The editors tested 200 food products and came up with the best-tasting winners in 32 categories. Twenty-six of the categories feature grocery store products while six showcase artisanal standouts. The issue hits newsstands September 17th. Vermont’s Cellars at Jasper Hill Cabot Clothbound Cheddar won in the artisanal cheese category.To qualify in the grocery categories, foods had to be available in major markets nationwide. Cooking Light vetted products against nutrition standards, eliminating those that contained artificial trans fats, too much salt, or artificial sugars. The panel of editors tasted finalists “blind:” the tasters did not know which brands they were sampling. Not all products are low fat. Some higher fat items are on the list because of their superior quality and taste. Used moderately, these products have a place in a healthy lifestyle. In each category, one Grand Prize Winner (GPW) is selected as well as one or more Taste Test Award Winners (TTA).”Our staff spent most of the last year tasting American grocery and artisanal foods for our awards,” says Editor Scott Mowbray. “We ate our way through bread, cereal, and hummus to find products that we felt deserved recognition. We added the artisanal categories because there is so much exciting action in the world of handmade food right now.”The 2010 Taste Test Award Grocery Winners:BEANS, Cannellini:GPW: ProgressoTTA: GoyaBUTTER, Salted Gourmet:GPW: Organic ValleyTTA: LurpakTTA: ChimayBREAD, 100% Whole Wheat:GPW: Rudi’s Organic BakeryTTA: Whole Foods OrganicBUTTER, Unsalted Everyday:GPW: Target Market PantryTTA: BordenTTA: Whole Foods 365 OrganicTTA: Wal-Mart Great ValueCEREAL, Raisin Bran:GPW: Kellogg’s Raisin BranTTA: Fiber One Raisin Bran ClustersGRANOLA, Oat and Honey:GPW: Cascadian Farms OrganicTTA: Whole Foods 365 OrganicTTA: Quaker NaturalHUMMUS:GPW: Tribe ClassicTTA: Athenos OriginalICE CREAM, Light Vanilla:GPW: Turkey Hill Vanilla BeanTTA: Edy’s Slow-ChurnedMAYONNAISE, Canola:GPW: Hellmann’sTTA: Whole Foods 365PIZZA, Frozen Margherita:GPW: Tandoor Chef Naan PizzaTTA: Amy’s KitchenPOPCORN, Light Microwave:GPW: Newman’s Own 94% Fat FreeTTA: Smart Balance Light ButterTTA: Act II 94% Fat Free ButterRICE, Long-Grain Brown:GPW: Lundberg Family FarmsTTA: Arrowhead Mills OrganicRICE, Boil-in-Bag Brown:GPW: Uncle Ben’sTTA: SuccessSALSA, Mild Tomato:GPW: Green Mountain GringoTTA: FronteraTTA: OrganicvilleSAUSAGE, Chicken and Apple:GPW: Lou’s FamousTTA: Al Fresco Sweet AppleSPAGHETTI, Whole Wheat:GPW: Gia RussaTTA: RaccontoTTA: Target Archer FarmsSOUP, Reduced-Sodium Chicken Noodle:GPW: ProgressoTTA: Campbell’s Select HarvestSOUR CREAM, Light:GPW: DaisyTTA: Organic ValleyTTA: Target Market PantrySOY MILK, Plain, Light:GPW: Target Archer FarmsTTA: SilkSOY SAUCE, Lower-Sodium:GPW: KikkomanTTA: Target Market PantryTOFU, Firm:GPW: Melissa’s OrganicTTA: Nasoya OrganicTTA: Tree of LifeTOMATOES, Diced, No-Salt-Added:GPW: Del MonteTTA: Whole Foods 365 OrganicTORTILLA CHIPS, 100% Yellow Corn:GPW: Target Archer Farms OrganicTTA: Tostitos NaturalTUNA, Albacore Packed in Water:GPW: Whole Foods 365TTA: Crown Prince NaturalTUNA, Gourmet, Packed in Oil:GPW: Ortiz Bonito del NorteTTA: CentoYOGURT, Plain, Nonfat Greek:GPW: FageTTA: ChobaniTTA: Voskos OrganicThe 2010 Taste Test Award Artisanal Winners:CHEESELeelanau Cheese Company Raclette, MichiganCellars at Jasper Hill Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, VermontBeecher’s 4-Year Aged Flagship Cheddar, WashingtonMeadow Creek Dairy Appalachian Semi-Soft Raw Cow’s Milk, VirginiaSweetwoods Aged Goat Cheese, New MexicoCONDIMENTSLattin Farms Cantaloupe Jam, NevadaSticky Finger Bakeries Orange Curd, WashingtonBreezie Maples Farm Maple Syrup, New YorkFarmer’s Daughter Hyderabadi Tomato Chutney, North CarolinaHay River Pumpkin Seed Oil, WisconsinLa Nogalera Walnut Oil, CaliforniaMEATTurner Ham House Country Ham, VirginiaTall Grass Buffalo Jerky, South DakotaPork on a Fork Cottage Shoulder Cut Bacon, ArizonaBoccalone Nduja, CaliforniaSalumeria Biellese Wild Boar Sopressata, New YorkSPIRITS AND BEERSCorsair Artisan Gin, TennesseeBlue Corn Brewery Transcendental Tripel, New MexicoStranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, ColoradoDeath’s Door Gin, WisconsinSWEETSSalem Baking Co’s Ginger Spice Moravian Cookies, North CarolinaEffie’s Homemade Corncakes, MassachusettsSweet Margy Tofikomin, IllinoisAlma Chocolate Icons, OregonChocolat Handmade Chocolates, UtahTHE BEST OF THE RESTBrooklyn Brine Co.
