    The All Canadian Taste & Buy event Savvy Company hosted was great….in spite of the two rainshowers!  It didn’t dampen the spirits of the tasters.

    Savvy Cool Curds is hands-down a great idea. There is no one better suited than Vanessa Simmons to select the best in Canadian cheese to discover each month. I’m sure the cheese-of-the-month will succeed because consumers want local…they want Canadian!
