Fête des Fromages

The French-American Chamber of Commerce of the Gulf Coast region is excited to present a celebration of more than 100 artisan cheeses from all over the world. Stroll the grounds of the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the U.S. Mint while listening to great music, sampling cheeses, tasting specialty foods and sipping on wine, cider and beer. Watch a cheese wheel cracking competition, featuring Chef Michael Gulotta vs. Chef Isaac Toups, learn about the history of cheese with Chef Alex Miles, or VIPs can catch a seminar with world-renowned cheese experts Liz Thorpe or Michele Buster. Round off your festival experience with a visit to Le Marché, a fabulous store brimming with plenty of cheese-related items to take home.
