Farmed French cheese breeder, Bernard Antony, will send his fine artisan cheeses to Ubud May 27 – 28 for a rare pairing event: “Du Pain, Du Vin, Dun Fromage” held at Petani restaurant in Alaya Resort Ubud. Perfecting the art of maturing and “ripening” farmed cheeses at his “fromagerie” located in the quaint village of Vieux Ferrette in eastern France since 1979, Antony is regularly lauded by gourmands and chefs worldwide including 19 Michelin three star restaurants that feature his cheeses.
Opening the event, Indonesian culinary expert, restaurateur and TV figure, William Wongso, is no stranger to French cuisine. In 2001 Wongso received the Chevalier dans Ordre National du Merite from France’s Ministry of Agriculture (Antony would go on to receive the same award in 2008) for his role in promoting French gastronomy. An evening of pairing cheese with French wine and bread is priced at IDR 1,195,000++. Limited seats, reservations recommended.
