Cheese tasting and talk with Stavanger Ysteri. Taste a selection of artisanal cheese from Stavanger Ysteri, a Norwegian dairy in the city of Stavanger.
In 2015 Ms in cheese science Lise Brunborg established her own artisan cheese factory in the city of Stavanger, south west coast of Norway, in an empty old canning factory. To start a cheese production in the middle of the city was a perfect way for Lise to communicate the importance of local food production. We need the people in the cities to understand and vote for good and fair food politics. Stavanger Ysteri collaborates with the only organic milk farmer in area and produces cheese of daily fresh raw milk. Despite being a young factory, two of the cheeses got gold medals in the Norwegian cheese championship in 2017. Besides running the cheese factory Lise is a supervisor for cheese farmers in Norway and teach courses in cheese and dairy products. The talk will focus on the importance of collaboration in the artisan food industry and on the different cheeses made at Stavanger Ysteri.
