In the streets, courtyards and piazzas of Bra, you’ll be able to meet other people who make Cheese such a great open-air get-together.

Street food and craft beer stands will be open from Friday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and on Monday on 11 a.m. to 8.30 p.m.

Street kitchens

Street Kitchens will be arriving from all over Italy to serve up the country’s tastiest street foods.

From Ascoli Piceno, we have Migliori Olive. The Migliori family has been present in the food sector for several generations and has always been at Cheese with their products. Over the years, they have expanded beyond their legendary olives – don’t miss the ones with Nonna Maria’s recipe, featuring aged Parmigiano Reggiano and select meats – to include many fried proposals like cremini mushrooms, mozzarelline, and baby artichokes. The olives are also available in a gluten-free version.

From Fanano, we have, the street kitchen that has been offering tigelle stuffed with the finest Emilian cured meats and cheeses, including Parmigiano Reggiano and pecorino from various Apennine producers, for several editions of Cheese. Try their tigella with local cheeses.

Food trucks

California-style food trucks are becoming increasingly popular across Europe. At Cheese 2021 they will be offering their customary range of top-quality Italian food at affordable prices.

From Milan, we have La Polpetteria, a traveling project born from the desire to go back to basics and cook one of the most versatile dishes that unites kitchens and homes worldwide: the meatball! The team’s experience has allowed them to bring gastronomic and cultural proposals “on the road” from a gourmet perspective. Their recipes are born out of love for the land of taste, respect for nature and its seasonal products, the study of traditions, and the use of the best ingredients. Don’t miss their “Ardiciocca,” a delicious cartoccio with artichoke meatballs, parsley, pecorino cheese, and aioli.

From Noceto, we have I Love Gnocco Fritto, an adventure that started in 2016 but with over a decade of experience in the product and street food scene. Their food truck has traveled from north to south Italy with the goal of introducing the products and typical Emilian cuisine by working directly in front of customers to deliver fresh, fragrant, and original products. At Cheese, you’ll find their gnocco fritto served in various combinations with the finest local salami and cheeses from the Emilia region.

From Cervasca, we have Sabaco DOC/FaMù. The FaMù project was born from a collaboration with the agricultural and social cooperative “I Tesori della Terra,” a reality deeply rooted in the territory. The sharing of ideas and goals has undoubtedly contributed to the success of the FaMù project, which was conceived as a local proposal supported by the idea of offering consumers not only local and artisanal products but also ones that embody the values of social inclusion that the company strongly believes in. Yogurt and cheeses are among the offerings you can find at Cheese 2023.

Craft beer

And of course, we can’t overlook the craft breweries, a labyrinth of beer labels where you can find the one that best suits your palate and pairs perfectly with the street food offerings. Here are some of the featured breweries:

From Arco, we have Birra Impavida, a venture born in 2020 just a few kilometers from Lake Garda. In their beautiful and welcoming taproom, as well as at Cheese, they offer American-style top-fermented beers and European-style bottom-fermented beers, all meticulously crafted and delightful to drink. Among the beers worth trying are the Free Solo and the Chain Breaker.

From Alessandria, we have Canediguerra, a nationally established reality. They bring back international beer styles but with a personal touch that makes their beers recognizable and appreciated by consumers. Styles, varieties… Canediguerra’s selection allows you to explore different tastes and flavors. All their beers are worth trying, but don’t miss out on their Brown Porter and American IPA.

Finally, from Roccasecca, we have Beerfirm Terra di Lavoro, a project born in 2012 with the aim of creating an agricultural brewery using local products. They offer well-structured beers, among which stand out the American Pale Ale and “La vedo Nera,” a robust Porter that pairs perfectly with the most flavorful cheeses.

Cheese 2023 is organized by Slow Food and the City of Bra from September 15-18. See you there! #Cheese2023
