Gruyere AOP can be found at big box retailers, the greatest cheese shops in the country, and the corner bodega.
Not to mention non-AOP 'gruyere,' which is more abundant now than ever.
170 dairies make Gruyere AOP. Plus 53 dairies for Gruyere d'Alpage. And just 8 affineurs.
For mongers, this is a lot to consider.
Join us at the Barnyard as we discuss these issues with special guest Guy Arpin, from Fromage Gruyere S.A., smallest of the eight Gruyere AOP affineurs, & former Vacherin Fribourgeois Crepi cheesemaker at Fromagerie Marsens-Vuippens.
As one of the younger individuals working on this side of the Gruyere industry, Guy Arpin is both opinionated and wise beyond his years. We expect a smart and impassioned conversation.
Town hall format with moderator. Audience participation is highly encouraged. We'll have beer & Gruyere. Obviously.
