Time Out says
An entirely free French cheese festival comes to the Inner West
The only thing better than a tonne of French cheese is a tonne of French cheese that’s free. Correct: free. Beginning Friday, October 18, Carriageworks will be home to Bon Fromage – a three-day cheese festival presented by the French Dairy Interbranch Organisation in conjunction with the European Union.
Over the weekend, curd nerds will be able to sample some of France’s finest cheeses from a 60-metre tasting table with over 20 varieties of cheese, and take part in a series of complimentary masterclasses and demonstrations from Sydney’s best cheesemongers, with topics ranging from drinks pairings to comparative tastings and cheese history.
There will also be a wine bar on-site, as well as dishes designed specifically for the festival from the likes of Koi Dessert Bar, BL Burgers, and Loluk Bistro. And, of course, there will be kilos of French cheese available for purchase.
The opening night session runs Friday, October 18, from 5-7.30pm, while both Saturday and Sunday will be have morning (10.30am-2pm) and afternoon (2.30-6.30pm) sessions.
They’re expecting over 7,000 punters over the weekend, and tickets are completely free. In other words, jump on it now.
