Mondial du Fromage – International Cheese, Tours – Loire Valley
From Sunday to Tuesday the 3 day Mondial du Fromage t in Tours, France has a lot to offer!
This biannual event is another big shot the cheese community can’t wait to happen again.
There will be the world contest of the best cheesemonger as well as the international products competition, where in 2019 over all 952 cheeses from 25 countries were presented and in sum won 35 super gold medals.
But don’t worry – for non professionals there is of course lots to taste, see and talk about!
*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.
On Sunday 9th of August the anual Fête du Fromage de Vallée d’Aspe takes place for the 27th time!
Here some highlights:
• Cheese and Crafts market
• Cheese contest
• Living farm- Discover the local breeds of the Pyrenees.
• Wine and cheese tasting workshops

• live music
Today about 190 farms cover an area of 13 villages and are home to many, many ewes, cows and goats – don’t miss out on this great event. The cheeses – I promise – are incredibly delicous!
