Save the Date to Celebrate!
Join us on Saturday Nov 2nd, to celebrate our Adopted Alp.
There will be cheese with new batches of Alpkäse 2019 and the sublime Vacherin Fribourgeois to try and purchase. There will be T shirts to be won in a trivia competition, and there will be a performance by Swiss-born singer and storyteller, Gabriela Martina (https://gabrielamartina.com), from 12 - 1 pm.
See you there!
Oct 2nd. Cheese has arrived!
Ruoti and Kevin has sent us our first cheese for the year: Alpkase 2018, which has matured since last year, salty, herbaceous. Raclette, punchy, sticky, yummy and ready to melt.
The opposite is the new label that they are placing on their cheeses: it's a scene from the valley, which you'll probably recognize if you study the photos of our Alp trip to visit them, in our blog!
