About Cheese:

Cheese! Milk in All its Shapes and Forms Comes to Bra from September 16 to 19, 2011. The international biennial event organized by the City of Bra and Slow Food is now in its eighth edition. Dedicated to “milk in all its shapes and forms,” it has created an international network of cheesemakers and artisans who gather in Bra every two years to present their products, meet co-producers (consumers), discuss the challenges of the trade and market prospects and share solutions to problems old and new.

Cheese will be held in the historic center of Bra, the Piedmontese town where the Slow Food international movement was founded and where its association headquarters are based. Hundreds of exhibitors will be setting up stalls in the streets and squares of Bra and events and conferences will take place. Learn more at
