A Cheesy Contest
If you've been busy watching Monday Night Football to kick off your television viewing week, you might have missed out on Cheese Science, which airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on UEN-TV (Utah Education Network). Well, all you young wannabe cheesemakers will want to participate in UEN Cheese Science's 2015 Cheese Challenge. This is UEN Cheese Science and its partners' second annual cheesemaking contest, and it will be held Oct. 20 at Salt Lake Community College. The Cheese Challenge is open to any Utah student enrolled in a public high school or secondary-degree program. All contestants must enter in paired teams and may submit up to two cheeses per team. Professionally trained judges will grade all entries and provide each contestant pair with feedback. All cheese must be made from pasteurized milk, which will be donated by Harmons and Heber Valley Cheese. For entry forms and more details, go to UEN.org.

Greeks Bearing Food
By the time you read this, there will be a new Greek restaurant in town, and it's not another gyro/souvlaki joint (not that there's anything wrong with those). Manoli's (402 E. 900 South, 801-532-3760) will feature an array of vegetarian, seafood and meat meze, salads (horiatiki and roka), and main dishes such as Mary's roasted chicken in chamomile broth (kota me hamomili); a grilled market steak with lemon-roasted potatoes called brizola; lamb burgers and more. Manoli's will also offer wine, beer and cocktails. See the full menu at ManolisOn9th.com

PC Dine About
Park City Area Restaurant Association's annual Dine About will take place in Park City from Oct. 1-11. Dine About features specially priced lunches and dinners from approximately 30 restaurants priced at $10 or $15 per person for lunch, and $20 to $40 per person for dinner, depending upon the establishment. Regarding Dine About, PCARA director Ginger Ries says, "It's such a great way for diners to check out new restaurants or revisit old favorites, and an excellent chance for restaurants to recruit a whole host of new fans."
