The 5th annual Pacifica Jack Cheese Contest celebrates the true origin of “Jack” cheese, which was created at the Mori Point Inn in 1888 by the Pacifica living, Italy-born Stefano Mori and his wife, and whose recipe was stolen by a fair-weather friend who whisked it off to the Jack Ranch in Monterey and dubiously produced it at commercial scale as if it were his own.
Thankfully, the Pacifica Historical Society has discovered the truth, resurrected cheese, and invites locals annually to conjure up their best dishes using Pacifica Jack and compete for prizes.
