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.

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.
Just in time for the beginning of summer, today we will finish our little spring excursion into the world of goat cheeses. And since our vacation paths will lead us down South we send a farewell salute to spring with Italian Grandezza *Capriziola Dolce* by Carozzi Formaggi Srl. from Lombardy.
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.
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.
