Formaggio…e dintorni, Gemona del Friuli, Italy

Gemona –  Formaggio…e dintorni, Gemona del Friuli, Italy

DATE AND IMPLEMENTATION TO BE CONFIRMED

After the 20th anniversary in 2019 and a cancellation last year Gemona’s cheese festival goes into its 21st round! Go there for a day trip from Udine or spend the night in this little Friulian village.

For 3 days the town ´’s focus lies on cheese and its friends – Wine, beer, bread- you name it, they have it!

Costano, Italy – Sagra della Porchetta

Sagra della Prochetta di Costano –
You can see – Gutav and I not only love cheese!

Itmight not be the oldest festival of Umbria but the organizers say they are very close to win that prize.
Around since the 1960ies the Sagra della Porchetta stands for quality, hospiitality and for a hell of a good time. 
If you are not in the area, which you might be because Perugia and Assisi are just a stonethrow away – you should jump into your car, hop on a train or saddle your horse. 

Have fun and maybe we see us there!

Sagra della Toma – Usseglio, Italy

Sagra della Toma di Lanzo e dei formaggi d´Alpeggio – a true italian feast!

At 4.30pm , friday the 13th of July the town of Ussegglio – a 1.5 hour drive north-east of Turin – will open its gates for the 22nd time to the Sagra della Toma.

Until Sunday evening you can taste your way through over 100 food-stands that will offer all kinds of piedmont cheeses and also products from other parts of Italy.

The highlight  is the presentation and tasting of the queens of the valleys – 
The Toma di Lanzo, the Toma del Lait Brusc and all kinds of other alpine goat cheeses.

Who has been in the area knows that there are plenty of awesome things to fill up your belly such as Jams and honeys and delicious salumi, eg. Salami di Turgia, Salsiccia alla Toma, Lardo etc. and I promis you will  find all of them there!

You can attend the “hour as a cheese maker” and produce your own tomino which you can of course  take home to show off to your friends or do a guided tasting with a jury of sensory experts.

And of course – there will be craft beer, piedmont wines and.. music!

 

MOVED to 22 Festival del Formaggio – VIRTUAL in 2021

notes from the cheesy roads – the Holy Prosecco Land

Last fall for a long weekend we drove to the Veneto, namely into the area of Conegliano. Our main focus, I have to admit was to stack up on as many bottles of Prosecco as Signor Rossi can carry but Gustav wouldn´t be *team formaggiastic* if he wouldn´t have pointed out some cheese hot spots for us.

So here, an excursion for mind and heart and a short idea post for your future travels; two cheese places we went to and happily recommend for your next trip to “Prosecco Land”.

Instacheese behind the scenes:
As some of you already know 3 years ago *Caseifici agricoli* initiated the “open farm days”, where dairy farms open their doors to visitors, let them taste their cheeses and tell their stories.
The idea behind it is to let people know about the dairy cultural heritage of farms and landscapes and to spread the word of a sustainable, gastronomic and cultural tourism.

Besides the annual open house days (this year on September 12th and 13th )  caseifici agricoli started a live Instagram meet-up with farmers and cheese makers as well as other professionals in the field.

So, if you know some Italian tune in!
Every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday at 9pm CET

For a preview on what to expect this sunday- here ´s  what our guests say about themselves:

La nostra è una piccola azienda biologica a conduzione familiare, situata nella vallate di Piana degli albanesi, adiacente al famoso lago. L’attività principale è l’allevamento di ovini, ma ci occupiamo anche della produzione di cereali e foraggi biologici in modo da soddisfare quasi totalmente l’alimentazione del gregge assicurandoci la totale genuinità; la stessa genuinità che ritroviamo nei nostri formaggi. Nel caseificio produciamo i formaggi tipici del nostro territorio, dal primosale ai pecorini stagionati alla delicata ricotta, esclusivamente a latte crudo. La “filosofia aziendale” infatti è volta a mantenere il legame con la natura e le tradizioni forti del nostro territorio, valorizzandoli con la conservazione di sapori e saperi antichi.

For a preview on what to expect this sunday- here a short insight

L’azienda Barone Macrì s.r.l. alleva: bovini di razza frisona italiana, ovini di razza sarda, caprini di razza maltese. Gli animali aziendali sono allevati allo stato semi-brado. Durante la bella stagione vengono fatti pascolare nei terreni aziendali, nei periodi più freddi si utilizzano foraggi aziendali ed extra-aziendali, che vanno ad integrare il fabbisogno alimentare giornaliero. Il latte viene trasformato nel caseificio aziendale, per ottenere prodotti a latte crudo che sono venduti, usando il marchio aziendale, nei diversi supermercati della zona ed anche presso il punto vendita aziendale.

Immersa in uno scenario incantato come quello della Locride, la nostra azienda agricola rappresenta un luogo ideale dove trascorrere un periodo di vacanza o, anche, solo una giornata all’aria aperta, a contatto con la natura.
Guidati dal legame con la nostra Terra trasmettiamo ai visitatori l’armonia dei luoghi, il rispetto per la tradizione che, insieme a una continua e specializzata innovazione, sono per noi prerogative essenziali per offrire servizi efficaci e ottenere prodotti finali di alta qualità, nel pieno rispetto per l’ambiente e gli animali.
Ideali, per godere pienamente della magica atmosfera del posto, nel più completo relax, sono il nostro confortevole B&B e, inoltre, l’accogliente ristorante nel quale scoprire i gusti unici dei nostri piatti tradizionali, preparati con cura e dedizione dai nostri cuochi, usando solo i prodotti 100% biologici proveniente dal nostro orto.

La nostra azienda, situata nelle colline del Mugello a Scarperia, alleva 500 pecore di razza sarda secondo i metodi dell’agricoltura biologica dal 2001 e produciamo direttamente i foraggi per l’alimentazione del nostro gregge. Nel rispetto della natura, non usiamo sostanze chimiche per una produzione ecosostenibile e salutare, e i nostri animali pascolano all’aperto per la maggior parte dell’anno
Trasformiamo tutto il latte prodotto in formaggi biologici freschi e stagionati.  Lavoriamo il latte a crudo, questo ci permette di caratterizzare il nostro prodotto e valorizzare tutte le sue peculiarità. Ogni prodotto ha un sapore inconfondibile, risultato di una lavorazione che lascia integre le qualità e gli aromi dei nutrienti presenti nella materia prima.
