The biennial Slow Food Cheese Festival held in the tiny town of Bra in northern Italy is a pilgrimage for cheese-lovers from all around the world. It’s a four-day celebration of all things cheese with a particular focus on learning about traditional, regional cheeses and cheese-making practices.
There’s markets, tastings galore, classes and lectures, but one of the highlights is the street of Slow Food Presidia cheeses. The Slow Food Presidia aims to protect and promote traditional products at risk of extinction as well as protecting unique regions and ecosystems – and here you will find all sorts of interesting cheeses including Pecorino made with pig’s rennet and the famous Polish cheese Oscypek.
