Afrim Pristine--"Cheese Keeper" showcase

Afrim Pristine was in front of the camera again for an upcoming segment soon to air somewhere on CBC.

Topic? Cheese!.....answering a volley of helpful hints on how to maximize your Cheese experience...cheese that can match your personality....cheese that you can mix other foods with and the cheese's you shouldn't even try. I don't at this time have a date for airing or what show specifically but here's a behind-the-scenes look during the interview.

I do have something more concrete to report for future planning at Cheese Boutique.

This year's May Festival of Chefs will be the biggest month long event to date...its a milestone 5th year running and by proxy of the calendar dates during the month, there will be more Chefs in attendance than ever before...(CheeseB hosted 9 Chefs in the past).

This year--the last weekend splits into June and to close the event it will edge into that month...meaning a total of 10 Chefs for 2008!

Stay tuned for more details as this year's roster will get posted sometime in February.

Wine and Cheese "Via Allegro"

Keeping up to pace with CheeseB is always a challenge.

Moving into 2008, CheeseB I'm told is going to build on milestones and relationships that bring to the consumer the best quality gourmet food available.

Among those relationships has been CheeseB's 4 year involvement with The Wine Tasting Challenge created by Via Allegro Ristorante and sponsored founders with Toronto Life, Spiegelau and Brock University. What is Wine without Cheese I ask you? Hence, the Cheese for the event supplied by none other than the "Cheese Keeper" himself, Afrim Pristine. The Wine Tasting Challenge is open to professionals and amateurs alike. Perhaps this may inspire a reader of the blog to take on the challenge towards 2009....

James Chatto was in attendance and I'll post an updated entry from him when I find it but for now I do have an account of last year's event that will give a descriptive incite to the events goal on Chatto's blog.

Congratulations to this year's Wine Tasting Challenge Winners!
