The Borough Shop Cheddar Tasting
May 6 at 10:00 - 10:30£10
Join Martin for a short tasting and glance behind the scenes of our Borough Market Shop. Martin will introduce you to Neal’s Yard Dairy: the history, how we work and our aims in working with British farmhouse cheese makers. Cheddar is one of Martin’s passions and he’ll share with you his knowledge of its history, how it is made, and how we select it. Of course, the highlight will be a comparative tasting of four Farmhouse Cheddars.
Needing a part-time job whilst studying for a degree in archaeology, Martin was quick to embrace his new career in cheese. 13 years later he is currently the manager of the Borough Market shop and works with a team of 12 people to bring the cheese from our makers to our customers in the best condition and in a spirit that celebrates and champions new and traditional British cheeses. He will find any excuse to talk shop, improve what we do and make more people care about both their own domestic cheese heritage and their culinary future.
