An afternoon of discussion and cheese (+ wine at reasonable prices).
BOOK NOW for an afternoon of beautiful imagery and discussion showcasing raw milk cheese production in the Valley de Bagnes, Switzerland. Join Christophe Prodanu, third generation French cheesemaker as he takes us into his rustic world of raclette production at 2000m altitude. Christophe will share with us the tradition of cheesemaking on alpage - the summer pasturage of animals in the mountains – and the culture that surrounds this timeless cheese production.
This is a lovely opportunity for cheese makers and cheese lovers to be inspired by a dedicated cheesemaker as we observe his season on Alpage and consider how it relates to the Australian context.
To complement this fascinating discussion we will taste some of Australia’s best raclette and mountain-inspired cheeses, including from L’Artisan (VIC), Section 28 (SA), Marrook Farm (NSW) and this year’s Grand Dairy Awards Champion Cheese ‘Heidi Raclette’ (TAS) served in Swiss tradition.
Be inspired by a timeless cheese production and a dedicated cheesemaker, relate it to the Australian context and celebrate Australia’s local alpine-inspired cheeses.
All accompanied by local Boomtown Wines, available to purchase at reasonable prices.
Date: Sunday 23 April, 4pm to 7pm
Venue: A different location this time - at Boomtown Wines, located at the food, artisan and vintage hub of central Victoria, The Mill, 9 Walker St, Castlemaine
Cost: $15 ASCA members, $25 non-ASCA members
