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.
