While industrial cheeses are increasingly pervading supermarkets and food preparation, individual cheese makers try to preserve a long tradition of hand-made cheese, a know-how enabling France to boast more than 2000 varieties of cheeses.
With the curation of the Parisian cheese maker Laurent Dubois, Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF), and the exceptional participation of William Wongso, culinary expert decorated both in France and Indonesia, the French Institute Indonesia organizes a special workshop about artisanal cheese-making and cheese tasting experience. For the occasion, Jamie Najmi from the Yogyakarta-based Mazaraat Artisan Cheese Factory will do a demonstration of Indonesian-made artisan cheese using French techniques, while you will be able to taste and discover a unique selection of rare cheeses from France, even unknown to most French gourmets.
