*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: Hall 4, Basel Congress Center
Price: Free entry

I was told about this by GG who, of course will be there with his cheeses, and was really surprised to see that the organisers hadn't thought to mention it on EF (... how dare they forget! ).

Anyhoo... for those who are interested, here is a link: http://www.expat-expo.info/Basel.html

Entry is free and the list of participating organisations, from clubs, food and services is listed on the web-site.

I think the organisers need to be told that there are no less than 6 congress halls, so they might have offered a bit more clarity about exactly where it will be held. However, from the map, I think Hall 4, the one by the Swissotel, where the Winemesse is held during the autumn fair. So the regular EFing Basel-boozers will be familiar with that location then

Just to repeat, this isn't a particular event that I'm organising - so no need to sign-up - or that I'm affiliated to in anyway, although I will make an effort to get some cheese... but just thought EFers in the region, especially newcomers, might be interested in.

Re: Expat Expo Basel

It looks like the Expat Expo is in the "Congress Center", which is above Hall 4.

I'll be bringing Godminster Bio Cheddar (our best seller) and the more spicy raw milk Isle of Mull as well as Stilton, Shropshire, Wensleydale and hopefully some ripe and runny gentle goats cheeses.

I'll be bringing a couple of cases of Rappi Gold and some Port, say you're from EF and you'll get a swift one on the house.

Can you bring a chunk of that red blue cheese for me?

Won't be there 'til the afternoon, so if you could put it to one side (as well as a round of Godminster) I'd be grateful!

Re: Expat Expo Basel

Will the cupcake shop from the viadukt be there Grumpy?

If not, any chance you could grab us a few bottles of orange and ginger cordial from them and bring it with you on Sunday? You'll make mirfield a very happy boy if you can

We'll of course be wanting some cheese and ales from you too and we'll be there nice and early to clear out all of the Shropshire Blue (including Carlos's)

Nope. But it's me that stocks the ginger cordial and I'll try to remember to bring a case. And plenty of Wensleydale of course

Oops Sorry GG.

I hope you do remember to bring some as we drank the last bottle in two evenings (and it says it makes 10 pints ).

Gorgeous stuff.
