Street kitchens, food trucks, craft beers

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 KITCHENS

Street Kitchens will be arriving from all over Italy to serve up the country’s tastiest street foods in the square of the Scuole Maschili (boy’s school) and Piazza Spreitenbach. Between regulars and new faces, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Among the first confirmed are Quelli della Bombetta with their unbeatable rolls of capocollo and Pugliese Canestrato cheese, a typical specialty of the Itris Valley accompanied with a slice of bread from Alta Murgia; and the Focaccia di Recco Consortium: flour, fresh cheese, extra virgin olive oil, water and salt, and a little secret kept by the bakers of Recco.

FOOD TRUCKS

California-style food trucks are becoming increasingly popular across Europe. At Cheese 2019 they will be offering their customary range of top-quality Italian food at affordable prices in Piazza Spreitenbach.

From Turin, the jacket potatoes of Poormanger with heaps of toppings prepared specially for Cheese, and Sbaffalo, with their buffalo burgers and other indulgent treats from Cuneo.

CRAFT BEERS

At the Beer Square in Piazza Spreitenbach, you’ll be liable to get lost – as always! – in the maze of Italian and foreign craft beer labels as you seek out the one that suits your palate and goes best with the street food of your choice.

Confirmed for 2019 so far we have Birrificio del Forte from Pietrasanta, Tuscany, who mix traditional craft with modern technology, and Birrificio Kauss from Piasco, Piedmont, whose constant quality is the fruit of a local supply chain.

Street Kitchens, Food Trucks and the Beer Square are open from Friday to Sunday, from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. and on Monday from 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
