Cheeses of France, the leading resource for information on French Cheese and Butter in the U.S., France, will be hosting a fun, interactive pop-up event at The Westfield Topanga on Friday, October 20th and Saturday, October 21st.   Président Cheeses will be featured at the event.

At this two-day event, “Fall In Love With Fromage”, consumers will have an opportunity to speak with representatives from each of the participating producers, learn more about the history and production of French cheese and sample each of the cheeses.

During this event, more than 25 types of cheeses and butters will be showcased in a fun interactive way. Cheeses selected for sampling include Comté, Triple Crème Brie, Camembert, and many others.

The cheeses will be available for sale at ‘discovery’ prices.Guests will come away with an enhanced understanding of French cheese and naturally more appreciation for the different types of cheeses.

“This event will be an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the cheeses and have a great time while learning more about recipes, production regions and even cheese lore”, says Charles Duque, Director, The French Dairy Board, Americas. “French Cheese and butter are more than food, they are a conversation starter and a link to food culture,” Duque added.

France offers more 1,200 cheeses, and this event will allow the cheese lovers of the Los Angeles area to explore and indulge these international offerings.

The wide variety of cheeses is due to the different cultural practices of the people who make them. But it can also be explained by the many different types of milk there are (cow’s, ewe’s, goat’s, buffalo’s – there are lots of dairy breeds). Finally, the production technology used, and whether the milk is raw or pasteurised, means that there is a variety of around ten families. Between authentic cheeses with a strong character which are enjoyed every day, to fondue or spreadable cheese, there are many ways to navigate through this vast family.
