Recipient hopes to teach about the unknown origins of cheesemaking
By: Daphne Zepos Teaching Award
The Daphne Zepos Teaching Award (DZTA) is an annual scholarship awarded to a food industry professional to further their learning—and their ability to educate others—about cheese. Winners use the award to travel abroad to learn about the craft of making, aging or selling cheese. This is prize's seventh year. Previous winners have traveled to Spain, France, England, The Netherlands and Switzerland.
To apply, candidates write a brief vision describing what will happen because they earned this award. The award requires that the person have worked in some part of the food industry for three years and have a membership in the American Cheese Society.
About the Daphne Zepos Teaching Endowment
The endowment is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that funds the annual award. Hundreds of donors have helped make it possible. All the proceeds go towards the annual scholarship.
The DZTA is named in honor of Daphne Zepos, one of America's most inspiring cheese teachers. Daphne lectured, moderated, and presented at the American Cheese Society's Annual Conference. She taught at Slow Food's bi- annual Cheese in Bra, Italy, at the College of Marin, and at courses throughout the country. Daphne passed away in San Francisco in the summer of 2012.
