Cheeses are becoming more and more important in the catering industry.
Getting to know the best artisan cheeses from Spain, France or Italy, establishing communication between restaurateurs and cheesemakers to boost the market, or learning how to create a cheese board for a restaurant are some of the possibilities offered at the first edition of a festival known as A Todo Queso, to be held in Marbella on 17, 18 and 19 October.
The first day of the festival, organised by Origen and Marbella All Stars with the collaboration of Sabor a Málaga and Marbella Town Hall, will be reserved for restaurant representatives and cheese-making professionals.
Open to the public
However the following two days, 18, 19 October, the festival will be open to the public with tastings at the Mercado Central in Marbella.
During the day there will be specialised workshops and guided tastings, as well as an exhibition of artisan cheeses by the invited cheesemakers.
The cheeses selected for the A Todo Queso festival will be available for purchase in different shops in the old town of Marbella for the duration of the event.
A Todo Queso is inspired by the now legendary annual cheese fair 'Cheese', organised by the international association Slow Food and held in the town of Bra in Italy.
