Cheese 2019 – Italy’s holy grail for cheese lovers!

Cheese 2019 – I am sure that as a fellow cheese lover going to the bi-annual festival “Cheese” in Bra, Italy is for you, as it was for me, a long-held dream. With 300.000 visitors in 2017 and over 400 exhibitors this year it is one of the biggest and also most important cheese festivals in the world.
I finally got to go this year, and for those of you who couldn´t make it I put together some impressions from my visit.

pit stop @ the Cheese Board Collective

Do you know the feeling when a travel or excursion is proposed to you and the first thought that strikes your head is – “will there be cheese?”
Since my travel in question involved assisting my partner´s move from Berkeley to Vienna, the answer was on the table right away.

I finally got to visit the famous Berkeley Cheese Board!

Say Cheese! – formaggiastic´s artsy intermezzo

Say Cheese! – Some of you might have seen on Instagram or in the media that formaggiastic together with the photographer Natascha Auenhammer organized an exhibition dedicated to our beloved friends the cheeses. We could also win Wolfgang Bäuml and Christiane Spatt as participating artist.

“Say cheese” playfully adressed the question of wether  there is common ground between  cheese and art. And if cheese is an art or if art is maybe cheese.

Divle Obruk Peyniri- all but average

When your friends are scattered around the globe, spontaneous beers are a rare joy, but on the upside you get inside-views of other cultures and countries.

One of my friends co-runs hep.istanbul vienna,  a company specialized in concept & strategy development for a number of things including the food and drink sector.
So, naturally when given the “please bring me some cheese from Turkey” challenge, he didn´t show up with just some random market cheese.
