Salón del Queso, the sixth version of the Bogota cheese fair, will be back in Bogota from September 15-18. This Carulla and Éxito event will be held this year in Centro Comercial Unicentro.
Why go? Well, two tons of cheese will be sampled. That’s reason enough. But beyond that, there will be workshops, talks, and demonstrations that will help you get a closer relationship with cheese from around the world. Cheese makers and cheese sellers, chefs and other experts from Colombia and all parts of the globe will participate.
