It’s getting darker. It’s getting colder. The urge to hibernate is upon us. With spring but a distant glimmer on the horizon, what better way to maintain strength and spirits than with a bold, fortifying cheeseboard?
Cheese has always been a seasonal affair, a fact oft forgotten in an age of industrialization, refrigeration and homogenization. For millennia, the cheeses which graced our ancestral tables would vary with the seasons and the cheeses of the winter months provided an appetizing source of fat and protein in an otherwise lean diet.
At this event we will taste and discuss a selection of cheeses that could (and should) be at the top of your shopping lists throughout this chilly of year. Not only will we be sampling some of the traditional Mons stalwarts from France and Switzerland, but also a selection of the British cheeses which have made a recent and welcome arrival to our Dulwich cheese counter.
Alongside the cheese we'll also be serving delicious beverages and accompaniments.
Bring a warm jumper, an appetite and prepare yourself for a hearty tasting experience.
Tickets are priced at £45 per person.
