The Rolling of the Truckles

posted by on May 18 at 15:46 PM

More (sorry) about the Cheese Festival:

To launch the Third Annual Seattle Cheese Festival off on the right wheel, a “Rolling of the Truckles” will pit men against cheese on Saturday, May 19 beginning at 10:00 a.m. A truckle is an 18-pound barrel-shaped cheese that’s taller than it is wide. Rolling one of these cylinders requires a special cheese spatula and, perhaps, a sense of humor.

Competitors include:

* Seattle’s Granite Curling Club
* Chef/Ower Thierry Rautureau, of Rover’s restaurant
* Kurt Beecher Dammeier, of Beecher ’s Handmade Cheese

“Truckle”: best word ever.

Feh, it's not as good a word as "salacious" or "salubrious" or "pinochle" or "malfeasance".

And who wants to get up at the crack o' ten to watch cheese log rolling?

Unless booze and melted cheese eating is involved, that is...

Might I suggest a quick look at, which posted "Truckling the cheese" Sunday afternoon...along with a YouTube video of that very event. Cheers!
