21.10.2011 to 22.10.2011 19:00 to 17:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Lausanne & Geneva
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: in thread
Price: see details

In case you missed me last weekend in Morges and Geneva I'm heading your way again. Friday 21st October from 7 - about 9 or so in the evening I will be at the Christ Church in Lausanne for a wine and cheese evening. I will give a talk about my cheeses with some funny stories and I will have a competition to win a big chunk of Stilton. There will be lots of cheese to try and also to buy, a percentage of my take will go to the church too.

The wines will be from South Africa and there will be tea and cakes afterwards (how sweet, made by the church ladies of course).

This is not a religious event, you don't have to be a Christian, or even religious, to attend. it is purely a fund raising event to keep this important building standing.

A very lovely forum member has suggested we have some beers afterwards so I'd welcome being taken by the hand on a pub crawl. I'll be staying in town that night, so you'll just need to get me back to my hotel in one piece.

The next day I'll be in Geneva at the Moevenpick wine shop from about 11 - 5. I'm not sure what their plans are exactly, but they usually have 40 or so bottles of wine open for you to try and I'll have some special cheeses to pair with them. The wine and cheese tasting is completely free, but of course you can buy to take home too.

In particular, we would like to know if you are attending the Lausanne church evening do so we can plan numbers, just let us know about the Saturday one if you're hoping to meet some more lovely EFers!

So just to be sure Grumpy, you will be at the Cellier Movenpick de Geneve, ch du Grand-Puits 40, Meyrin? I do hope so,cos it's about 15 minutes away from chez moi, when I am in Vaud that is!

Darn! That's slap bang in the middle of the school holidays, so we won't be around. Missed the Morges event too (even though I desperately wanted a toasted cheese bagel).
Next time though!

Yes that's right Grumpy, between the Airport and CERN. I will be there with two guests. Having missed all the festivities last weekend, I am really pleased that I can at last participate in something, drink wine, meet other EFs and taste your cheese!

So gutted that we can't be there as had such a good time last weekend and met some really lovely EFers.
It's these sorts of events that get people together and form friendships - so hope you all have a wonderful time.

Am coming with a friend who is interested in trying English cheese (she's Italian / Argentinian).

Just one question... will there be non-alcoholic drinks available?

Will you need help with installing everything? I live close-by and my OH will be there too if there's heavy things to carry I'd be happy to help, just ask!
