Cheese Please with Maître Fromager Afrim Pristine
Fogo Island Inn welcomes back Afrim Pristine, the world's youngest maître fromager, who will bring some of his favourite aged cheeses to Fogo Island from November 1-3, 2019. Practicing affinage, or the art of aging cheese, he is the owner of the Cheese Boutique in Toronto, a 4th generation, almost-50-year-old cheese store housing 500 kinds of cheeses alongside meats, local produce, savory snacks, pastries, and desserts. Cheese Boutique’s mission is to foster an appreciation of fine food as one might foster an appreciation of fine art. Afrim will join guests for a Welcome Reception in the Inn's Lounge featuring a selection of fine cheeses, and further share his epicurean passions and knowledge over the course of the weekend through presentations and explorations of cheese types and tastings.
The Cheese Please itinerary at Fogo Island Inn includes all meals, cheese tastings, an Island Orientation with a Community Host, and full use of the Inn’s facilities. A two-night minimum stay is required.
