vermont cheesemakers festival

Posted: June 30 2010

July 25th!  Check it out here.
Formaggio Kitchen, one of our favorite places, is making a field trip out of it.
Climb aboard the Formaggio Kitchen bus to lovely Shelburne Farms, Vermont, for the second-annual Vermont Cheesemakers Festival, Sunday, July 25, featuring 50 cheesemakers, 20 wineries and breweries and a host of artisan foodmakers.
Your day begins at 6 a.m. with a light breakfast onboard the bus. As we make our way north, our cheesemongers will whet your appetite with an informative presentation on cheesemaking and our favorite domestic cheesemakers. Spend the day relaxing at Shelburne Farms, a beautiful cheesemaking estate that sits right on Lake Champlain, sampling cheese and other artisan foods and meeting some of America's finest cheesemakers.
At the end of the day, we'll head over to another part of the Shelburne Farms estate for a private barbecue, prepared by our own Formaggio Kitchen grillmaster Eric. Eric, who you know from our popular Saturday sidewalk barbecue, will serve up generous helpings of your favorite barbecued meats and side dishes. Arrive home by 11 p.m. full and happy with a new appreciation for artisan cheesemaking in America.
The cost is $175 per person, which includes transportation, ticket to the festival, breakfast and dinner.
To sign up, buy a ticket on our website or stop by the store. For questions, email [email protected] or call 617-354-4750.
