An Oscar for Swiss cows?

March 19, 2014

We don’t know how the cows would take care of the Oscar acceptance speech but the cattle of cheese maker and farmer Ruedi Foehn are definitively the stars in “Toeny’s Bridal Journey”, a historical documentary that is currently shown in Swiss movie theaters. Foehn is the maker of the “Alp Draeckloch”, a highlight in the Beeler Selection.

Quality Cheese got the rights to show you the movie trailer as well as a report by the Swiss TV news broadcast “Schweiz Aktuell”. You’ve got to watch these. The two videos are educational, they tell an almost forgotten story that has shaped an important part of Switzerland, they show the benefits of transhumance – in a nutshell: They tell about  a vanishing world that we – Quality Cheese and our partners – desperately try to keep alive.

Fondue in Africa

January 31, 2014

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. Fondue in Africa
