About the Event

Meadows has become well known for cheese and we are really proud of our selection which is a collection of personal favourites all handmade by small producers across the UK and Europe.

Join Suzannah, owner of Meadows and our lead cheesemonger, for a tutored cheese tasting.  Cheese does not always need to be served at the end of a meal.  A cheese course can be an excellent starter or the main event of the meal itself. We will taste a selection of cheeses that work really well for a summer aperatif or picnic. 

Cheese is a broad subject and it is easy to go off topic but the plan will be to explore the following:

  • is there such a thing as a cheese course and who decided it comes at the end of a meal
  • cheese as a starter and the rise of grazing plates
  • cheeses that work well for breakfast, as a starter or as part of a summer picnic and why?

The class will include a tutored tasting of 5 cheeses served with bread and crackers.  A welcome drink is included.

This is a seated tasting event with a communal table.  Due to the nature of this tasting, we cannot cater for specific dietary requirements but we can provide gluten-free crackers.  Note that we will taste cheeses made with unpasteurised milk and/or traditional animal rennet.

LIMITED SPACES - Please book a space as soon as possible.

If you would like us to host a private tasting for you at home, at work or for a social occasion please do get in touch
