Cider & Cheese – The next Neals Yard Dairy tasting is July 18th

This Tutored Tasting will be held at

Neal’s Yard Dairy-The Warehouse
6-8 Park Street

I suggest you book now as these always seem to sell out!


Wednesday 18th July 7:00 – 9:00pm

Somerset and Normandy, famous for Cheddar and Camembert, are also the spirtual homes of cider. With its fruity, floral, estery notes and carbonation, cider is a versatile pairing for cheese — Ploughman’s lunch, anyone? We will talk about the history and styles of cider from the West and East Country, as well as exploring the less appreciated Norman and Asturian traditions, to find classic matches and new harmonies with cheese.

Andrew Nielsen is a former cheesemonger, amateur brewer, dabbler in cider and an artisanal winemaker in Burgundy with his wine label Le Grappin. producing small batch Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune on the Côte d’Or. As well as being passionate about all things fermented, Andrew is also completing a degree in fermentation science and is a keen student of the history of cheese, wine, beer & cider. Andrew’s talks are a mélange of history, science and wonder for the magical gifts of our microscopic partners of yeast, mould and bacteria.

Tickets: Cider & Cheese 18.7.12 on Neals Yard Dairy.

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
