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 cheese appreciation class.  We will discuss different aspects of cheesemaking that contibute to the different flavours that make cheese taste so delicious.

We will taste a selection of cheeses that demonstrate certain flavours and we'll introduce aspects of cheesemaking that contribute different characteristics, helping you discover more about the cheeses you like best and why?  

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

  • the milk type -  animals and the different flavours that can be found in their milk
  • the rind - the impact of the rind in the development of different flavours in soft cheeses
  • the recipe - terroir, temperature and time and how differences contribute to flavour

The class will include a tutored tasting of 6 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
