This year’s awards is aiming to beat the records set at last year’s event, which had 3,730 entries from 26 countries over 270 classes.
The awards will be held in Dorfold Park on Tuesday, July 24, which is judging and trade day, and on Wednesday, July 25, where the awards will be open to the public as part of Nantwich Agricultural Show.
It will feature more than 60 trade stands and a UK and Continental market area for smaller artisan cheese makers, with around 1,000 producers represented.
TV chefs will add a touch of celebrity sparkle to the occasion with Gino d’Acampo, James Martin and Jean-Christophe Novelli cooking their favourite cheese dishes on the Wednesday when the show is open to the public in the new purpose-built cooking demonstration area sponsored by Le Gruyere.
