This fun, online tasting showcases the finest British cheeses and matching international wines in a humour-filled show. Inspired by cheesemaker and wine expert Francis Gimblett’s 100 Cheesemakers in 100 Days road trip and forthcoming book, Gimblett’s Guide to the Best of British Cheese, the experience is engaging, fun and highly interactive.
In the show guests learn how to detect milk type, age and production method of a range of the finest artisan cheeses, as well as grape types, region and quality of international wines. The event begins with light-hearted instruction on cheese and wine tasting, then guests deduce the answers set on the tasting charts in small groups, promoting interaction.
The format (video and live hosted) also covers Francis’ essential cheese and wine tips covering aspects of buying, storage and service, as well as food and wine matching.
