On October 23, 2006, Fatos Pristine was inducted the Order of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Taste Fromage de France. The following year, on March 31, 2007, Fatos hosted an elaborate ceremony at Cheese Boutique so that the Confrérie could induct nine more Ambassadors of Cheese into the order, including son Afrim Pristine.
This all day event was a rare opportunity in that Knights are not normally honoured outside of France. The Confrerie specifically indicated that the nominees be local to our community in Toronto. In attendance was a delegation of French representation that included the Grand Commander of the Confrerie, Monsieur Jean Arnaud. Members of the community were invited to share in the event and participate in adding awareness for the love of cheese and how it is woven into our city. The day was packed with cuisine events---a showcase of cooking with cheese from some of our most notable French Chefs in Toronto.
