Make a date with artisan cheese this April 

Gastronomy comes in all shapes and forms in the Canary Islands and in April, the spotlight will fall on cheeses.

One of the most important cheese fairs of the archipelago will be held in La Orotava on April 6th and 7th and a huge crowd is once again expect-ed.

The deadline for entries for producers is March 15th.

The event is organised by the Pinolere Cultural Association in collaboration with La Orotava council, Tenerife Cabildo, the General Directorate of Livestock and the Canary Islands Institute of Agrifood Quality of the Government of the Canary Islands.

Sponsorship of this IX Fair of the Canary Cheese and 7th Insular Cheese Competition of Tenerife – Pinolere 2019 comes from CajaSiete.

The fair takes place from 10am to 8pm.

This year’s poster is by photographer Yapci Gómez Lima and reflects the artisanal evolution of the Tenerife chees.

More than 50 dairies from all the islands of the archipelago are expected to take part.

Organisers will reveal more details of the wide programme in March but say the theme will be from artisanal to innovation. It is also intended to link this to the creative gastronomy of the Canary Islands, as many artisan cheese makers work for prestigious chefs and restaurateurs from all the islands.
