Events by Partners

This page is dedicated to the many events offered by the partners of Cheese. You’ll find most of the event’s partners located in Piazza XX Settembre.

 

Lurisia signs the labels as one of the healthiest and lightest waters of Europe, and of original and good drinks. The company also pays particular attention to the protection and promotion of the territory, conscious and sustainable use of resources, and to the desire to put people at the center of the business. At Cheese 2017 Lurisia water brings the perfect blend of flavors and pleasures. The good foods of Piedmont’s traditions and the flavors of selected cheeses are exalted by Bolle and Stille. Lurisia’s design, elegance and pleasure in drinking, offers a rich tasting schedule with free participation in its stand at Piazza XX Settembre.

 

 

The Consortium of Parmigiano Reggiano will be present at Cheese 2017 with its own stand where mainly the cheesemakers at the event are hosted. Through stories and guided tastings, the aim is to appreciate not only the unique characteristics of the product, but also the differences that come from seasoning, land characteristics, breeds of animals and methods of production that, being completely crafted, brings the unique impressions of the masters. The Consortium will also produce a series of workshops, guiding consumers and restaurateurs to sensorial appreciation of the various characteristics of Parmigiano Reggiano, also presented with some enological and gastronomic delicacies.

 

As a Slow Food Italia Official Supporter and official partner of the event, Pastificio Di Martino will bring cheeses that reflect the taste and history of Gragnano IGP Pasta. Theme workshops, suggestions on the correct pairing of pasta and cheeses, and tastings will animate the large stand dedicated to the pasta factory. To support the activity of the pizza shop at the fair, once again there will be Slow Food Education Campania, which through entertaining educational moments on the theme, will guide adults and children to discover the secrets that the Di Martino family has been handed over for over one hundred years. However, the participation of the pasta shop also extends beyond its exhibition space, affirming its presence in the Taste Workshop dedicated to the earthquake areas and in the Cooking School Salvatore Tassa: The Eco-Sustainable Cook.

 

After their success at Slow Fish, with 4000 beers served, 12 workshops sold-out with the participation of more than 300 visitors, Quality Beer Academy returns to Cheese with even more energy: 35 street beer stands and many international guests among them. At the center of all this, American Firestone Walker brewery offers 5 street stands with the presence of Adrian Walker to tell the secrets of the brewery. Speaking of cheeses, we can’t ignore Belgian beers, including the Rodenbach and Boon beers of mixed and spontaneous fermentation. They will also be served at the many events guided by the sommeliers of QBA.

 

Genoese wine importer and distributor, a leader in the world of super premium distillates and natural wines, Velier will be present also at Cheese 2017 as Official Sponsor of Slow Food Italia and official partner of the event. The choice of Velier to support Cheese 2017 highlights the many points in common between natural cheeses, craft rhum and Triple A wines that populate the Genoese distributor’s portfolio. As the natural wine comes from grapes grown without chemicals, and spontaneously fermented with their own yeasts, also true cheese comes from animals reared on unprocessed pastures, unpasteurized milk and without selected ferments. And consistent with this approach, there will also be handmade rum obtained according to traditional practices. Velier offers a series of appointments that you can read below, and with a cocktail bar open every day from 4 pm. Additionally, Triple A wines selected by Velier will occupy the Free Space. The company is also the protagonist of many Taste Workshops and meetings at the Biodiversity House.
