Since 1997, the biennial Slow Food expo Cheese has been bringing together lovers of formaggio for three days of classes, tastings, and debate.

This year, Cheese 2011 will take over the streets of Bra (in Piedmont, Italy) from September 16-19 for a celebration of the rich, creamy food: From the artisans who prepare it using traditional techniques to the future of fromage, the event promises a savory look at the world of cheese production.
