Get ready to delight your senses at the third annual Say Cheese! Artisanal Cheese Fair on 6 and 7 October 2018 at the Italian Club, Milnerton.

The brainchild of well-known foodie Miki Ciman, this premier cheese celebration will focus on world-class artisan and boutique cheese makers, bakers, brewers and winemakers.

Cheese lover’s paradise

Says organiser Kiki Ciman-Frauenknecht: “This year it’s all about the art and creativity of cheese making by the extraordinary local talent we have in South Africa. Many of our exhibitors are small producers who rarely travel outside their areas to market their cheese. It’s going to be a cheese lover’s paradise.”

Fellow organiser, Elize Nel of A3 Technologies, adds that visitors love the fact that they can interact with the cheesemakers. “They are passionate about and committed to their trade, and love to share the fruits of their labour with others. We’ll have all kinds of cheeses including gorgonzola, pecorino, fontina, provolone, brie, mozzarella, blue or cheddar – a jam-packed assortment of gastronomic delights for turophiles.”

A lively weekend line-up will see leading chefs, food bloggers and wine purveyors conducting tastings, pairings, and cheese-making demonstrations. “There truly will be something for everyone including a demo area where well-known chefs show you how to wine or beer tastings, a kids’ playground to live music,” Ciman concludes.
