Cheese Berlin 2021 – Berlin, Germany

Cheese Berlin – make sure not to miss it!

Since in 2020  “Cheese Berlin”  unfortunately had to be cancelled this year it finally comes back to life!

As before Cheese Berlin will take place in the Markthalle Neun, an important indoor market that first opened its gates in 1891 and is, by the way, always worth a visit.

From November 12th to November 14th it hosts this years “Cheese Berlin”, where you can taste numerous cheeses from all over Germany and Europe, listen to lectures and find out all about cheese manufacturing.

It is a great event to get in contact with producers and broaden up your knowledge on everything cheese.
And in case you want to have a little preview – here’s the link to our trip from 2019.

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

Not everyone of us can go to *Cheese* this year. So for those who have to stay at home, here some memories of cheese 2019. Some things I am sure have changed, others are still the same.
Enjoy the read and let´s plan a visit for 2023!

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.

Robiola di Roccaverano DOP -don´t mess with Rocky Balboa

With cheese it is sometimes like with good, old friends. You haven’t seen them in forever and all of a sudden your paths cross and it seems like no time has passed. You still can laugh and talk all night and realize how much you’ve missed each other.
Kind of a similar thing happened to us with today’s guest. Long time- no see, and boom!;
Ran into him and immediately fell in love again. *Robiola di Roccaverano DOP* from the Piedmont.

Let´s Talk Fromage…

Goat cheese season already started and as promised May will be the month we will introduce some white delights every cheese lover dreams of.

As you all know there are as many variants of goat cheese as there is sand on a beach and therefor our selection was driven by personal cravings, curiosity and a hint of conservatism.

Today we introduce a super fresh and sparkly french gal as well as two somewhat more earnest compatriats. – Curtain up!

what the actual Goat?

Spring is on the jump and with it are goats and their cheeses!

We @formaggiastic are big fans of fresh as well as aged goat cheeses and over the course of the upcoming weeks will take you on a deep dive into the world of these white beauties.
But before we start with mouth-watering examples, here some basic facts about goats, their milk, and their cheeses.

CANCELED Cheese and Wine Fair – Coulommiers, France

Due to the current situation this event had to be canceled.

International Cheese and Wine Fair 2021 – moved to 2022

Unfortunately also this year the International Cheese and Wine Fair in Coulommiers, France had to be canceled.  

Since 1967 ten thousands of people gather together for this four day festival, celebrating local products presented by over 300 exhibitors and craftspeople. 

Fingers crossed for 2022 – when there will finally be again the famous livestock exhibition as well as numerous tastings and various contests. 

Make sure to reserve your first row spot for 2022!
