A Portrait of British Cheese: An Evening of Cheese and Wine

part of the Jarrold Foodie Fortnight

September 29 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Join author Angus Birditt and local chef Richard Bainbridge as they converse about all things cheese. Take a seat in our Wine Bar with the best view of our new, walk in Cheese Room and enjoy hearing about Angus’s travels to dairies all over the British Isles, looking at the food, people and landscapes dedicated to artisan and farmhouse cheeses. From Lincolnshire Poacher to Stichelton (the original Stilton), to Brefu Bach sheep’s milk cheese from Snowdonia and Appleby’s Cheshire cheese from the heart of rural Shropshire, this is a unique journey which also visits Britain’s own Brie in the form of Baron Bigod from Suffolk.

Sample and discover more about three delicious cheeses which will be paired with perfectly selected wines by our own wine expert Vernon who curates the Jarrold Wine cellar
