International Dairy Farms, along with co-sponsor Alouette for have partnered up with the "Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association" to sponsor at the Taste of the Caribbean event in Miami the "Caribbean Cheesecake Competition" as well as sponsoring "Pastry Chef of the Year".
Our cheesecake competition requires each contestant to present a recipe in advance and prepare the cheesecake at the event. The only requirement is that our Smithfield Cream Cheese be the main ingredient and that the chefs highlight ingredients typical of their island.
Congratulations to all the participating teams. We are honored to have been part of these fun events and look forward to participating again next year.
