Exhibition of photos
From May 1, 2021 an exhibition of photos by Mr. Pierre Montavon to accompany the new book, The Universe of Tête de Moine AOP, will be on display at La Maison de la Tête de Moine.
This exhibition of photographs taken from this work conveys the portrait of this character cheese and of the many passionate people who contribute to its success, from dairy shed – via cheese dairies – to Michelin-starred restaurants.
