"Save a Cheese" Photo Contest
The sad truth is that some great cheese varieties are in danger of becoming extinct. Slow Food's Save a Cheese contest is your chance to put a worthy cheese back on the map at this year's Bra Cheese festival. Submit a photo of an endangered cheese in a setting that reflects what makes it special, and your cheese could get onto the Ark of Taste. The winner will also receive a new book from Slow Food.
Did you know that all over the world, dairy products are disappearing, along with the traditional knowledge, techniques, cultures and landscapes related to their production? The reasons are many: the abandonment of mountain pastures, overly restrictive regulations, long processing times and a market in crisis. Slow Food is gathering threatened products aboard the Ark of Taste because this common heritage of culture and flavors represents a wealth of biodiversity that must be saved.
