SA LOVES CHEESE!
No less than 27 500 fun and food loving visitors once again descended on the SA Cheese Festival over the weekend of 26-28 April in search of the perfect cheese. The ideal picnic weather, some 400 cheeses to choose from and the who's who of the food world sharing their culinary secrets contributed to an unparalleled autumn outing.
According to Johan Ehlers, CEO of Agri-Expo who presented this popular festival for the 12th time this year, the extended Friday night opening hours made up for the fact that the festival had to take place over a normal weekend. "However, in 2014 we're back in full force with four days of festivities from 25 – 28 April." See our full media releases on the 'News & Media' page for comments from cheese merchants and cheese makers.
