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!
