La Fête des Fromages de Savoie – La Clusaz, France

La Fête des Fromages de Savoie- 16 years of regional cheese!

For the 16th time “La Fête des Fromages de Savoie” will take place! 
This year (probably) on Saturday, June 5th and Sunday June6th in the little town of La Clusaz.
Savoy is the birthplace of cheeses like AOP Beaufort or the renown Reblochon AOP!
But I am certain you will also be able to get your hands on the other 6 signature cheeses of Savoy – AOP Abondance, AOP Chevrotin, IGP Emental de Savoie, AOP Tome des Bauges, IGP Tomme de Savoie and the youngest of the IGP group – the Raclette de Savoie.

It’s an event for the whole family and knowing the area I am quite positive that you will find plenty cheese-gems as well as other delicious foods and drinks.

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!

National Cheese Day 2021, France

National Cheese Day 2021, France

Created in 2001, France´s National Cheese day is celebrated on March 27th all over France!

Besides the fun times you will have on this day also keep in mind that it exists to raise awareness towards sustainable quality products as our beloved raw milk cheeses. 

The past years Paris held workshops and cheese lunches.  This probably won’t be the case this year. But you can just roam through the country – every shop and producer participating will have a poster so you know where to drop in for your – distanced – tasting.

CANCELED Cheese and Wine Fair – Coulommiers, France
