Swiss Cheese Award 2012 in Ticino

Of course, Switzerland would have a Swiss Cheese award. I have just never heard about it until this week but yet again it is all happening in the Ticino. So, to appease your hunger after yesterday's flashmobbing choreography session why not head to Bellinzona?

For four days, Bellinzona has become the capital of Swiss cheese where the experts have decided on the king of all cheeses: the Swiss Champion 2012 title goes to Charles und Patrick Hauser (Le Lieu VD) for their Vacherin Mont-d’Or.

I am wondering at this point: how DO you decide for the best cheese when you have a choice of 700 different ones?

Well, find out for yourself. Visit the Palazzo Civico in Bellinzona today and tomorrow to discover the winners of each of the 28 categories. Then take a stroll on the Piazza del Sole along the local cheese market. If you're lucky you might even spot Dimitri, the famous Swiss clown/actor who is performing with his Theatre company.

I know what you'll be having for dinner!
