Introduction

A facinating insight to cheese and its rich history, time permitting we will give a demonstration on how to make cheese, a truly memorable experience to treat your guests. We can run this in a formal manner with a facilitator or informal with cheese stations set up round the room with tasting notes so guests can enjoy them at their own pace and go back for more of their favorites!

Event Outline

Cheese has a rich History dating back 1000’s of years being discovered by chance when early travelers would store milk in dried sheep’s or calves stomachs which then curdled due to the traces of rennet, they began heavily salted as a means of preservation. Today there are literally 100’s of variations with even more regional influences to each variety defining many cultures with popular and quirky names like the Stinking bishop, Ticklemore and the drunken hooligan.  Many of us here in the UK are unaware of the shear variety we have on our shores that would easily compete with any of our neighboring countries in taste and quality.

In this fascinating cheese tasting class we will teach guests how and where to source the best UK cheeses and how to correctly taste them, we will include a blue cheese, 2 soft cheeses, a hard cheese, goats cheese and a “guest cheese” of the hosts choice, this will be accompanied by chutneys fresh seasonal fruits crackers and fruit breads a tawny port and a British white wine which we have matched with the cheeses.

Our tastings will include a varied selection of UK artisan cheese never found in the supermarket.
