QUEENS NEVER SMELLED SO GOOD!!!

The 4th annual Great Northeast Cheese Fest takes place Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018 at Flushing Town Hall. The region’s very best artisanal creameries will showcase more than 75 exquisite artisanal cheeses from nutty sheep's milk tommes and sharp Cheddars to luscious triple cremes and tangy goat cheeses.

These regional specialties will be joined by select international cheeses. Top New York City chefs, including, Hugue Dufour of M. Wells Steakhouse (Long Island City), Alfonso Zhicay of Queens' very own Casa del Chef Bistro (Woodside), and Chef Gary Anza of Astoria's Royal Underground will prepare delectable dishes using the cheeses.

Fine libations, including beer from Mikkeller NYC and cider from Brooklyn Cider House will be paired with all the glorious cheese. Rodrigo Duarte’s exquisite Portuguese charcuterie will also be featured, along with sumptuous freshly made mozzarella from Chef Roberto Caporuscio of Kesté Pizza & Vino. To satisfy the sweet tooth, there will also be decadent donnoli from Vaccaro’s Bakery (Astoria).

Here's what one of previous year's guests had to say:


"Last night's event was a revelation! Finding great cheeses will be my next gustatory quest. This was my first time sampling raw milk cheese (goat & cow) and I was totally blown away! There was so much depth of flavor in all that I sampled, I was transported to both farm and barn by the rich smells and the funky barnyard flavors."

Guests will have an opportunity to learn about the cheeses from both mongers and makers as well industry experts.

As part of the festivities at this year’s Great Northeast Cheese Fest, there will be a People's Choice Awards where attendees will be able to vote for their favorite fromage!
