From Neal’s Yard:


Tuesday 9th July

7 – 9 pm

Britain has a history of cheesemaking that dates from before the time of the Roman invasion. From so-called ‘crumblies’ such as Cheshire, Lancashire, Wensleydale, and Cotherstone to the famous Stilton and Cheddar, we’ll  eastercheeseexplore the immense diversity of cheeses that originated here (and in some cases went on to spread across the world). We hope you will join us to taste and explore the history of some of the best and most fascinating cheeses available anywhere.


Saturday 13th July

12.30 – 2.30 pm

Interested in moving beyond goats-cheese-with-Sauvignon-Blanc?

Join us for an in-depth exploration of the principles of wine and cheese pairing. Rather than following a set of rules dictated by tradition and geographical connections, we will examine the physical properties of wines and cheeses to arrive at unorthodox and successful matches.

Milleens with sake, anyone?


Saturday 27th July

12.30 – 2.30 pm

Summer is the time for long lazy outdoor lunches and in this class we will explore some appropriate pairings of cheese and wine. The season’s goat’s cheeses will be in their pomp and this is also a wonderful time to taste the British cheeses that look towards the Iberian Peninsula for their inspiration. The wines too will make for a taste of summer, from delicate Provençal rosé to saline Manzanilla and oily, aromatic whites. And of course, nothing tastes better in the sun than Champagne

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.
