All about Cheese

As part of our International Kitchen of 2017, there was a Cheese Making Demonstration followed by a Cheese & Wine Apero at Markthalle. The demonstration was given by the owner of MYLK, a new and unique cheese producer in the heart of Basel. Hess produces his own cheese, yoghurt and quark as well as selling other cheeses from well-known artisan producers. The cheeses on offer range from fresh soft cheeses through semi-hard and hard cheeses. Following the very interesting explanation of the cheese making process, the IWI sampled a variety of the cheeses on offer and were also able to purchase some to take home.


The Spring Bake-Off is fast approaching

Our first Bake-Off of the year will take place on Saturday 1st April at Markthalle in Basel. Non-members are welcome to participate. Our chosen charity for this Bake-Off is the Frauenhaus and 50% of the proceeds of the competition cake sales go to support this incredible charity.

IWI Basel Spring Bake-Off Entry Form


January 2017 – off to a flying start

It is sometimes hard to believe that this is our third year and January saw the IWI Basel very busy with a new Chair and Committee taking over and welcoming back old friends and registering new members. We had 2 Welcome Events in January and membership stands at 37 at the moment and we are only in the first week of February (Membership runs from the beginning of February for 12 months).

The new Committee has been busy planning events for the coming year and January has already seen our first lunch and cinema visit

We will be organising further cinema visits in the evenings as well so that those working or with children to care for can also participate.

Of course, we wouldn’t be the IWI if we did not have preserves on our mind and when the Seville oranges appeared in the shops we couldn’t let them pass with making some Marmelade. Look out for our Marmelade at the next Basel Bake-Off!

January also saw our first Theatre event and this was quite a special event as not only did the IWI attend a private session with the producer of Vagina Monologues but members participated in the production and supported the production on the door.

February brings more activities – swimming, spa day, walking, visits to Brockis, first craft sessions and a cheese making demonstration as well as Member’s Meetings and Bake-Off planning!
