*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Crissier, Lausanne
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: Rue de Morges 22, 1023 Crissier
Price: Free entry

I'll be at Moevenpick Wine in Crissier just outside Lausanne this Saturday from 10.00 - 17.00 with a selection of my artisan farmhouse British cheeses. There'll be free tasting all day and I'll have plenty for you to buy too.

The wine shop will also have loads of wines open for free tasting. If you haven't been to a Moevenpick wine shop, they have excellent quality wines at very good prices and the staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable.

Cheeses I'll be bring will include Westcombe "Slow Food" Cheddar, my best selling Godminster Bio Cheddar (including the heart shaped ones for next Thursday ), Cropwell Bishop "Traditional" Stilton as well as Stilton in Ceramic pots, Hawes Mature Wensleydale, raw milk Caerphilly, a selection of soft creamy blues from North Yorkshire.... and I may even bring along a couple of Stinking Bishops. I'll also bring some chutneys and crackers/oatcakes etc.

Please spread the word, I don't get down your way too often these days and it'll be nice to see a big crowd of English speakers in the wine shop!

Some of Grumpy's Stinking Bishop is currently lurking in my fridge and trying to make a quick getaway each time I open the door.
I've never tasted Cheddar as good as yours M. and that goat-cheese was perfection.
It was so good to see you again.

Re: British Cheese Centre in Lausanne this saturday!

So glad we managed to catch you today - some lovely cheddar and stilton in the fridge for later.

Anyone who loves cheese in Zurich - make sure you go or we'll be arranging some sort of kidnapping...

Where is it located in Zurich?

OTOH perhaps the O/P could come to Zug (there is a Movenpick wine shop there too). There are loads of expats from the UK and rest of the world living in Zug....

Re: British Cheese Centre in Lausanne this saturday!

Thanks everyone for coming and/or spreading the word, we had a really busy day. I'll be back there before Christmas and at the Moevenpick wine shop in Geneva on May 4th then in Morges for the British Classic car Show (Ploiughmans lunch, ale, Pimm's and Scones and Clotted Cream by the lake) on Saturday October 5th.

Glad you made it, you're looking as glamorous as always!

We're at the Moevenpick wine shop 6 or 7 times a year, but not because there's lots of expats in Zug, but because their Swiss customers love our cheese. Very few expats ever turn up to the Zug store for some reason. But at all these events, we only bring a small selection of cheeses, for the full range, between 30 and 50, you need to visit us at the Viadukt in Zurich.

Re: British Cheese Centre in Lausanne this saturday!

I'm blushing.
Good thing it wasn't today because we now have masses of snow, and I have friends stuck at Geneva airport which has been closed because of the conditions.

I'm back at this wine shop in Crissier tomorrow (Saturday 14th) from about 11 - 4. Free wine and cheese tasting... and you can buy some too. See you there!
