Bryndza: the first Slow Food Presidium in Slovakia

Slovakia, an independent republic since 1993, holds the unusual distinction of being the only country at Cheese 2019 which is younger than most of its cheesemakers. Of course, Slovakia’s dairy traditions stretch back hundreds if not thousands of years. The national dish, Bryndzové halušky, resembles gnocchi in a cheese sauce, and the cheese used to make it, bryndza, was traditionally made from sheep’s milk in the Carpathian Mountains.

#Cheese19: Natural is Possible

Now, as it’s not possible to give you an exhaustive itinerary in this article, we’ll limit ourselves to two important pillars of the event: the international protagonists of the Taste Workshops, and the three big conferences dedicated to the theme of Cheese 2019: Natural is Possible.
