Caroline’s uncle Roland and his wife Lisette live in the Senegal in Africa where they have opened a school to teach sewing and where they also do other charity work. Living on the “hot” continent is absolutely no reason not to enjoy a Swiss fondue. On the picture they share a fondue with friends while watching, well, soccer, of course.
Another great food show is behind us. We at Quality Cheese thank everybody who visited Caroline at the World’s Best Cheeses booth in San Francisco. And we are excited that our products got so much attention and praise. If you have any further questions, especially about our new items like the Glacier Creek, Holy Jacob, Lenker Butter, Duetto and Sheep Raclette don’t hesitate to contact us.
Thanks to our friend Manfred Schmid in Adelboden we have the Lenker Butter back in our portfolio. This is not a commercial product but an old fashioned dairy butter made in the dairy in the Lenk Valley in the midst of the Bernese Alps. The pasteurized milk comes from cows that spend the winter in the mountain zone and the summer on the alp meadows.
Our Adopt-an-Alp program has made it into the San Francisco Chronicle. Read Janet Fletcher’s article.
We get more reactions to our program. “Rubiner’s” have done an excellent job to explain transhumance, read the newsletter. “Caseus” in New Haven has worked with our updates. Alp Bleiki got high praise from Anthea Stolz of Bi-Rite (read her blog), and from Sara Adduci (Feast, Charlottesville, VA): “We are SUPER here, because we have our first wheels of Alpkase Bleiki! It is as delicious as you said it would be and I am SO happy to have it.” Or read Gordon Edgar!
