NEW YORK, December 3, 2019 – Emmi, the nation’s largest importer of specialty cheese from Switzerland, is partnering with Chef Elizabeth Falkner for the first-ever Swiss Cheese Pizza Tour. The duo will travel the United States to bring true Swiss cheese flavors to an American audience through pizza pop-ups at chef-owned restaurants across the country.
The evening pop-up events will feature Chef Falkner as a guest chef, menuing unique pizzas made with Emmi cheeses. Guests can also snack on custom cheeseboards to sample a variety of Emmi cheeses including Le Gruyère AOP, Emmentaler, and their line of Kaltbach cave-aged cheeses. Each event will be customized to each city, including chef-against-chef pizza competitions and more.
“I love playing with various ingredients and flavors, especially when I am able to be creative in a space with some of my favorite chefs and pizzerias,” says Chef Elizabeth Falkner. “Bringing Emmi Swiss cheeses along for the tour is going to be an exciting experience.”
The tour will make several stops, including:
- December 16, 2019: Razza, Jersey City, New Jersey
- January 20, 2020: Zero Zero, San Francisco, California
- January 28, 2020: Chauhan Ale & Masala House, Nashville, Tennessee
