Are you also a cheese lover and constantly going to your lactose-tolerance limit?
Formaggiastic! Welcome to the family!
I am Isabella, a Vienna-based architect and cheese-blogger, running an architecture office with one of my best friends since 2005.
In fall of 2018 I passed the exam to the European Cheese Expert and now am, besides an architect, officially also a Fromeliére. To my left by the way, that´s Gustav – he´s my tasting team.
When #Formaggiastic was born in early 2018 naturally the universal question of family and friends was – “and why exactly are you doing this?”
My answer to this is a rather simple one – “because it´s about cheese! And because I find it more than fascinating that one main ingredient can deliver such versatile products”
Cheese, its production and trade is strongly interwoven with the history of mankind, animals and landscape and its taste variety mirrors the efforts of thousands of cheesemakers from ancient times up to now.
This milk-born, colourful and often molded gem with its sheer endless tactile, visual, scental and gustatory qualities lets me learn and discover something new every day.
Together with Gustav, who successfully applied to be formaggiastic´s tasting team I read, taste, interview and travel through Europe and the world always in the hunt for new and old cheesy friends and my page is here to share our adventures with you.
“Thinking cheese” is our motto and we would love for you to join us and make the world a little more formaggiastic!
