Take a cheese road trip
Launched last year in response to the crisis facing the country’s specialist cheesemakers when the Pandemic struck, the British Cheese Weekender returns in April 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. All you have to do is buy British artisan cheese, tune in and taste along.
Support specialist cheesemakers
It’s been a roller-coaster year for Britain’s artisan cheesemakers, who faced disaster when Coronavirus hit last year and devastated sales. The British Cheese Weekender was set up in response to the crisis and was part of a groundswell of support to Save British Cheese. Thanks to these efforts, and the creativity and skill of the cheesemakers themselves, most have pulled through, but they still face huge challenges.
