The ninth edition of The Cheese festival in Stockholm had more visitors than ever. In the autumn the cheese festival comes to Gothenburg.
In the weekend 11.-12. of February, the ninth edition of the Cheese festival (Ostfestivalen) took place in Stockholm. The festival was visited by roughly 5,300 visitors, which is a new attendance record. At the festival, visitors could taste a unique range of Swedish cheese, suitable accessories and drinks presented by a total of 46 exhibitors.
In the festival’s cheese competition, a jury consisting of twenty cheese experts blind tested over 100 Swedish cheeses in ten different categories. In the hard yellow cheese category for example
‘Camelia’ from Hagarnas Mejeri won a gold medal. For the second year in a row, the winner of the Audience Choice was Björkenäs Eldost from Björkenäs Mathantverk in Småland.
