In a relaxed, informal setting above our Borough Market shop Fiona, Customer Champion for Retail, will host a Q&A session with Ben. Guests will gain an insight into life as a cheesemaker and Ben's journey of working with Neal's Yard Dairy. Guests will also be encouraged to contribute to the evening and are invited to bring with them any questions regarding cheesemaking they have always wanted to ask.
Further discussion will be held over a light cheesemonger's supper, including all of Ben's cheeses and a selection of Ben's favourite Neal's Yard Dairy cheeses. There will also be carefully curated suggested pairings and accompaniments - cured meats, fresh and dried fruits and nuts, honey, crackers, breads and chutneys.
There will be samples of 2 wines and a beer or cider provided to give you an introduction to pairing cheese with beverages. As alcohol is served, all attendees must be over 18 years of age.
You'll be given a tasting sheet with room to make notes, as well as suggested pairings to guide you as you explore which combinations you best enjoy. Attendees will be offered a 10% discount on all purchases made in the shop within a month, as well as a 10% discount in our online shop valid for one month.
