On February 11, Antonelli’s Cheese Co. turns 9 years old. and they’ll be celebrating in style by making it rain with free cheese across Austin with #FreeCheeseWeek. This year they’ll have more participating restaurants than ever while offering extra events and tastings, including the launch of a few new classes. (Fondue anyone?!)
Don’t forget to drop by their shop, where they’ll be giving out complimentary samples of a specialty cheese made exclusively for Anotelli’s by local producer CKC Farms. With Austin’s continued support in the local market, hundreds of artisanal producers are able to help Antonelli’s accomplish their mission to #DoGoodEatGood.
