NEW WAVE v GRANDMASTERS - a British & European cheese battle
Sun 7 May 2017, 14:00 – 15:00 BST
It wasn’t so long ago that British cheese was the poor relation of the international cheeseboard, but not anymore. A new generation of bright young British producers are taking inspiration from across the world to create new cheeses that can more than hold their own on their international stage.
See just how far we have come for yourself with an expert tasting hosted by food writer and World Cheese Awards judge Patrick McGuigan in the Culture Club tent at the London Cheese Project - a new two-day festival of fromage at Camden Market celebrating the capital's urban cheesemakers and street food melt masters.
Patrick will be tasting new wave British cheeses against the grandmasters of Europe that originally inspired them, and promises not to mention Brexit once. You decide who wins.
*Please note, this event for over-18s only and some of the cheeses will be made with non-vegetarian rennet. A minimum of six cheeses will be taste, plus two two drinks
