A few cows and lots of sheep were also spotted along the way much to the kids' delight.
There was also a good deal of wine flowing in front and behind the stalls. It is impossible to enjoy true authentic cheese without a good glass of genuine wine!

Cheese in all shapes and forms
Can you smell the cheese?

This little village fête actually reminded me a great deal of home. The Ticino village fairs are usually celebrated during the grape harvest season where the authentic wine is served with genuine cheese. Either way, it was a chance to savour the moment by tasting La fourme d'Ambert, the Reblochon, the Munster, the Abondance, the Altenburger Ziegenkäse, the Pico, the l’Évora and the Gouda just to name a few.
Adventures are so much more fun when shared with others. On that note, I had rallied another two Italian families (remember my hubby's a true Italian) whom also had arrived in Paris this autumn in order to render this little outing more fun for the kids since they all know each other from school. Well, all I'll say is that our excursion ended with a big family meal in a nearby trattoria with lots of mozzarella cheese on top of our pizzas. Once Italian, always Italian! Buon appetito!
