Yesterday I wrote about our cheesemaking group on Slow Travel and said "there is no such thing as too much cheese". We will find out if that is true in September when we are in Piedmont.
On the last weekend of our stay at Baur Bed & Breakfast, a bi-annual event is being held in the nearby town of Bra, the Slow Food CHEESE! festival.
I haven't found the schedule for the 2009 event yet, but here is lots of information for the last CHEESE! festival in 2007.
Wikipedia has a page on the Slow Food movement and its history.
Here are some photos from the brochure for the 2007 event:
And our very own Diana Strinati Baur posted these photos of the 2005 event in Slow Photos:
