It's Official: This Is The Greatest Cheese In The World

At this year's 29th Annual World Cheese Awards, 266 judges from 26 different countries came together to sort through more than 3,000 different cheeses and find the world's greatest.

The honor went to Tingvollost, a family-run dairy from Norway, and their Kraftkar blue cheese.

Judge Nick Trioros of Olympic Cheese in Canada, described Kraftkar thusly:

“The mould in this cheese is developed really nicely. It’s very evenly distributed. On top of that, the texture is great: when it crumbles you get a soft creaminess. And on the finish, it coats your tongue with a real soft landing.”

Yum. But don't toss out your cheddar just yet: As Tasting Table points out, Tingvollost doesn't ship to the United States. But with this major victory in their pocket, maybe Kraftkar will soon be found on a cracker near you.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
