Wallonia, the French speaking part of Belgium is on a quest to find the best unpasteurised cheese in the region.
La Bergerie D’Acremont, A Table – Maison Fromagère, FUGEA and Generation W have joined forces to organise this competition to find the best cow, goat, sheep and buffalo unpasteurised cheeses that are being made in this region.
The aim behind the initiative is to showcase the region, the know-how of the artisans making these cheeses and also the patrimony of the region. They also want to safeguard the different tastes that are possible from unpasteurised cheeses when compared to the standard tastes of pasteurised cheese.
The organisers want to help add value and also improve the production of these cheeses in Wallonia. The organisers do not only want to award the best cheeses but they also want to help the artisanal cheese makers to be recognised for their quality and to also improve their work.
