“Cheese Plus”, on of our favorite  stores in San Francisco, hosts this special event as usual before the start of the Fancy Food Show. It takes place on Friday, January 20, from 5 to 7 pm and will present several high end providers of foods. Amongst them is Caroline who will introduce the crowd to the cheeses of Alp Mettenen which is part of the Adopt-an-Alp program, introduced by Quality Cheese in 2013.

Adopt-an-Alp has grown significantely since then, not the least due to the fact that cheeses produced in altitude during transhumance have been identified by many studies as to be essential for a healthy diet. The program is currently run through a partnership with Mifroma USA. For more info click here
