CHEESE! MILK IN ALL ITS SHAPES AND FORMS
Cheese is back in Bra for its ninth edition, held this year from September 20 to 23.
Discover a world of cheeses amidst the stands of the Cheese Market—where you’ll find, among others, the producers from the Slow Food Presidia—and in the selections offered in the Great Hall of Cheese, this year featuring a special focus on the cheeses of the British Isles. During this ninth edition of the event, Slow Food will be relaunching the Ark of Taste project, inviting producers, exhibitors and visitors to nominate the cheeses around the world that urgently need to be saved from crushing standardization. Naturally there will be plenty of places for eating and drinking, like the Street Food stands, the Tasting Booths in the regional areas, the Beer Piazza and the Pizza Piazza.
The guided tastings of the Taste Workshops are always popular, and this year several will be held in the beautiful setting of Pollenzo (a few kilometers from Bra), in the Banca del Vino and the University of Gastronomic Sciences. The Master of Food courses will focus on tastings of typical cheeses from Belgium, the United Kingdom and Italy, paired with local and artisanal wines and beers. The Dinner Dates offer unmissable opportunities to dine in stunning locations where world-renowned chefs will be preparing local and international specialties. Once again, the educational activities for schools and families visiting the event will be an important element, as will the Milk Workshops, debates featuring experts and professionals discussing the issues around raw milk, starter cultures, the cheese-making traditions of the British Isles, animal welfare and the importance of pasturing.
