Where to get your Cheese fix at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto

You may have heard we love cheese, especially those produced using artisanal methods and raw milk. We love it so much every two years, since 1997, we have been holding the international Cheese event.

But while we wait for next year, we found some delicious tastings to share at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto.

There will be no shortage of cheese producers in The Market. Among some of the international cheeses, you will find the Irish Raw Milk Presidium, Spanish Manchego which is produced with sheep’s milk, and the melt-in-your-mouth thinly shaved Swiss Tête de Moine.Terra Madre Salone del Gusto Cheese

Within the many excellent kinds of cheese of Italy, you’ll find the Sicilian Piacentinu Ennese, of Centro Form, a Slow Food Presidium made using raw cow’s milk and saffron. Making your way through the market you’ll also meet the classic Parmigiano Reggiano prepared by the Consorzio Vacche Rosse. Others present will be the Caseificio Busti bringing the cheeses of Tuscany, Caseificio Val d’Aveto representing their Ligurian territory, Artigiana from Puglia, the historic Caseificio di Nuccio coming to make a name for Molise, and from nearby, Le Tome di Villa of Piedmont. These are just a few of the many Italian and European cheese producers present at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto.

Tastings at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto: What’s in store at Lingotto…

While visiting the main event at Lingotto, head on over to #foodforchange Food and Health for two taste workshops. One will open your eyes and palates to Austria, looking at how their local products provide a healthy diet, with a taste of their Brillenschaf cheese. The Cultures of the East maybe doesn’t speak directly about cheese, rather about cultured milk; but the Hutsul of Ukraine did tell us it holds the secret to long life. If you are curious about what happened after Cheese 2017, participate in our forum In Defense of Raw Milk to hear about how far our cheese producers have come one year on.

Something more, waiting at Eataly

Want to nibble on some more? How about pairing cheese with something a bit unusual? Head over to Eataly Lingotto, just a short walk from the main event. Start off with an authentic rye whiskey hailing from the British Isles, and paired with local cheeses chosen by Neal’s Yard Dairy. Prefer a taste of gouda and a fruity liquor? Taste your way through the Spirit of Holland. If you didn’t make it to Cheese or Terra Madre Nordic, make up for all you missed out on with a taste of Norwegian raw milk cheese with their ciders and famous kviek beer.
Terra Madre Salone del Gusto CheeseAs an alternative to alcohol, Fabienne Effertz and the Fromage & Thé association propose a Noble Flavors tasting, pairing a range of European cheeses to fine Asian teas. But if these pairings are too much for you, Lombardy has you covered with a simpler tasting of its range of raw milk cheeses coming from its Alpine chain.

Going beyond Torino

Eating cheese is one thing, but how about a chance to meet the producers at their workshops, learn more about their craft, and see what makes their cheese so special. Take a trip with Tour Divini through the hills and mountains of Piedmont to explore all their artisanal cheeses.

Spend a day around Alessandria and taste a cheese that brought joy to the taste buds of even the Mona Lisa and Da Vinci: the noble and historic Montèbore, today a Slow Food Presidium.
Another day we suggest you take a trip through the Langhe hills and taste the PDO Robiola di Roccaverano, made with raw goat’s milk. Heading up to the north of Piedmont in Biella get a taste of Macagn’ and a spectacular Alta Valle Elvo butter. Finally, if you are looking for something more familiar, but of the best quality, head over to Novara for a day filled with Gorgonzola.

We hope this cheese spread has satisfied you. If not well, we are sure to see you next year at Cheese 2019!
