    The biennial Slow Food Italy Cheese summit is back the Piedmont, for its 8th edition. Everyone from shepherds to ultra-small-scale cheese producers to chefs from all over descend on the town of Bra to talk dairy products. This year’s summit will focus on encouraging young people to become artisanal cheese makers–Bra will be renaming one of its piazzas the Piazza della Resistenza Casearia, the “Cheese Resistance Piazza,” to get young cheese revolutionaries excited–and, less  stirringly, on the issue of proper labeling. (Every revolution has its bureaucrats…) For attendees, there are “Milk Workshops” on topics like “Evolving Trends in Cheese Consumption” and “Counterfeit Cheese,” a master class on mozzarella, and 13 “Dinner Dates” in nearby villas and wineries.

    When: September 16 to 19, 2011

    Where: Bra, Italy

    Visit the Cheese 2011 website for event information and to book online. (Workshops range from 15 to 40 euros, Dinner Dates from 45 to 90 euros, and the mozzarella class is 35 euros.)
