Two ancient cities on the southwestern coast of Turkey, Milas and Bodrum, will host the second edition of Slow Cheese Bodrum, a local version of Slow Food’s responsible Cheese event, organized by one of our newest conviviums, “Yaveş Gari!”. The event will be held March 2-5, at the same time as the Milas Fair of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry.
“Yaveş Gari!” (meaning “slow down!” in local dialect) is a very common saying among Bodrum locals, because everybody here is chill, smiling and slow. Here in Bodrum we view fast-paced urbanites with staggering confusion,” says Deniz Kurtsan, the leader of the convivium. “However, that doesn’t mean we don’t work hard!”
