and beverage merchants including Sydney’s Simon Johnson Quality Foods, Adelaide’s Smelly Cheese Shop and The Drink Hive. The Gourmet Tasting Packs and VIP Tasting packs are available to purchase now until Sunday 15th November or until stock runs out. Masterclass spaces are limited and booking is essential.

François Robin said of his involvement in the festival, “I’m ecstatic to once again bring the world of French Cheese to Australia and share the rich cultural and culinary heritage that each cheese encompasses. But
most of all, help Aussies experience the simple pleasure of eating French cheeses”.
Presented by the Centre National Interprofessionel de l’Economie Laitière (CNIEL), with the support of the European Union, Bon Fromage will be held from Saturday 21st – Sunday 29th November 2020.
