Jarlsberg wedge


This contest is closed. Congratulations to our winner, Stephanie!!! And thank you to everyone who entered. We LOVED reading your posts!

As we work our way through the coldest months of the year, Jarlsberg USA would like to share some news that will warm your spirits. Jarlsberg is offering a scholarship to Eat Write Retreat, the fabulous food blogger and writer conference taking place May 4-6, 2012 in Washington DC.

As trees begin to green and flowers unfold in bloom, you could be enjoying a wonderful weekend of hands-on learning, dynamic networking and fabulous dining. You’ll come away with new friends, valuable insights on growing your blog, and–best of all–priceless memories.

At Jarlsberg, we believe that the best memories revolve around food. To enter the Eat Write Retreat Jarlsberg USA Scholarship sweepstakes, simply write a post about your favorite Jarlsberg memory. Could be a treasured holiday tradition that includes Jarlsberg, or a beloved family fondue recipe made all the more delicious with the addition of our nutty cheese.

If you don’t already have a Jarlsberg memory, there’s no better time to create one. Teach your kids how to make the World’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Jarlsberg. Carve out some time for a Jarlsberg after-school snack. Brighten Sunday brunch by adding Jarlsberg to your omelet and homemade biscuits.

Share your Jarlsberg memory on your blog, then come back here to share the link with us in the comments. One winner will be chosen at random from all qualified entries to receive an all-inclusive double-occupancy registration to Eat Write Retreat. (Transportation to and from the conference is not included, and is the responsibility of the winner.)

      Thank you! Loved your post. Jarlsberg is a great choice for that gratin, as it melts beautifully (in addition to its nutty, mellow flavor). Good luck!
