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.

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!
Also want some cheese for your Sunday afternoon coffeeklatsch but are surrounded by grannies who clamor for sweets? Then goats milk *Chèvre Coeur Gourmand Marrons* by fromagerie Chêne Vert should be your pick of the day.
Gustav and I can’t wait to return to our beloved Piedmont and were super happy to find this gem at @Tutta Posto last week. – L’ ´Ottavio (alla birra scura) by Fattorie Fiandino from Villafalletto about one hour south of Turin.
I don’t know how the past days went for you – but Gustav and I deep dived in WAY too much Thanksgiving deliciousnesses. Duck, Stuffing, Caramel Pecan/Pumpkin Pie – and this just to name a few!
So for our Sunday afternoon snack – we decided for *Ons Genot* and rich flavors without the heavy, fatty components.
*Vallée d’Aspe* – Fall is an excellent time to have some young and semi-aged cheeses. The animals, no matter if cow, sheep or goat that are in charge of our fall prey graze on mountain pastures or have rich lowland meadows of late spring and summer.
Our pick of the day therefore – a 4 month old raw goat´s milk pal from France.
