Cheese Fair: odours and flavours
Every year at the same period (1st Weekend of August), the traditional Cheese Fair takes place in Livarot.
This Celebration of the products of the soil is articulated around stands where producers coming from many French regions propose their agricultural products (wine, cider, cheese, sausage ) identified with a region or a small village.
You can notice as well the presence of many gastronomys brotherhoods which are the guarantee of the authenticity of the products.
David Martin, invited on the Fair this year, was introduced in the Order of the Brotherhood of the Livarots Knights, with the mission to introduce the Livarot in his cuisine.
This year, the 14th edition of the Cheese Fair was, as usually, a big success, draining during the two days a crowd of visitors enjoying the animations.
Competition of the most beautiful Norman cow, auction of young cows, tasting of the products of the soil, march of the Brotherhoods, cycle race, fanfare, competition of the biggest eater of Livarot cheese, gastronomy with the realisation of the first Livarot pie, fireworks and ball, everything was combined to satisfy all the visitors.
