Nick has been with Neal's Yard Dairy since 2016 and has worked at our maturing arches, with our e-commerce team and as a cheesemonger in our shops. This year he has been leading our "Fondue Night" classes along with being a regular speaker for both our public and private classes. He has spent many hours on the road visiting our farmhouse cheese makers around the county, whilst making cheese himself. Driven by his passion for diversity, which transcends our cheese and cheese makers, Nick enjoys exploring and enriching the taste experience by creating combinations with produce, wines and beers.
