CATALONIA – A CHEESE GETAWAY October 2020

** due to the current situation things might change – please check back for updates **

Earlier this year I was asked by *Aborígens*, a young, fun, and successful food tour organizer in Barcelona whether I would be interested in organizing a cheese-related trip together.    I mean – yeah, of course!

Knowing that great things should be acted on immediately, in February I flew down to Barcelona and met up with Cesc and Alex, the masterminds behind Aborigens, to fix the route and date – naturally while tasting some wonderful Spanish cheeses and wine.

The outcome is a tour tailored to the origins of Catalan food culture, taking us to traditional taverns, into the heart of a winery, and (most importantly) will let us taste many cheeses and meet with cheesemakers and gourmet professionals.

Obazda – the bavarian mash-mess

Usually in spring when days get warmer Bavarians swarm  to the beergardens to enjoy the bavarian signature cheese Obazda and being from Munich of course one of those people is me. But since life right now is a little different Gustav and I want to give you a home recipe and repost a memory from 2018 where we went to Munich, capital of Bavaria and herewith of the region the Obazda was granted PGI certification in 2015.

Have yourself a merry cheesy Christmas!

 It´s Christmas time!
Gustav and I over the course of this year tried out and enjoyed so many old and new friends that we didn’t always manage to share our prey.

So as a Christmas countdown we challenged ourselves to present a new cheese every day!
We will also have X-mas present ideas and of course some taste descriptions for easier dinner party show-offs.  Stay tuned! 🥂🧀🍾

Gustav says he made this year’s Christmas cheese countdown rock, and that for the big day he therefore demands to be the shining star!
Since he already headed off to wolves’ beach, today’s rating is entirely on me 😄🏄🏿‍♂🐾
I rate Gustav 1000/10 and wish him a happy Christmas surf, and all of you relaxed and cheeseful holidays 🧀🎄🥂
We will be back to work hunting our prey as soon as we get the sand out of our toes…..🐾😎
