British Cheese Weekender
(If you missed our session on this year’s British Cheese Weekender,
you can watch it again HERE)
We were very excited to be involved!
Launched last year in response to the crisis facing the country’s specialist cheesemakers when the Pandemic struck, the British Cheese Weekender returned this year with three days of free online cheese events aimed at celebrating and supporting this fragile sector. Be transported around the country, from fields and farms to dairies and maturing rooms, as well as cheesemongers’ counters and the kitchens of top chefs. Many of the sessions can be watched again.

Each day, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 3.30pm there was a super line-up of 30 minute talks, demonstrations, interviews, wine and cheese pairings – the list was endless!
The programme of talks and speakers is now live on the What’s On page on the British Cheese Weekender Website organised so well by Tracey Colley and Patrick McGuigan. They have included lots of information on the best places to buy cheese and any related offers. What a line up! There were chef demos from Tommy Banks, Simon Rogan, Mark Hix & James Golding, farm and dairy tours, cheese masterclasses from experts and even cheese pairings with wines and whisky.
John and Katherine from The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company had their own Saturday night slot and were chatting about their unique cheddar cheese (8.30pm on Saturday April 24th). Click on the link below to whizz to their event.
