God save the cheese!

Bra-Liceo Scientifico Giolitti – Gandino

The United Kingdom has an important dairy tradition which features some of the biggest names in world cheese.

Unfortunately, many of these are slowly disappearing, and there remain few producers who make them according to their original recipe, i.e. using raw milk.

In a tasting presented by Neal’s Yard Dairy we’ll discover:

  • Lancashire, produced with raw cow’s milk in the county of the same name
  • Cheshire, a “cross” between Cheddar and Feta—crumbly and savory, but not humid—made with raw cow’s milk in the county of the same name
  • Wensleydale (of Wallace and Gromit fame) soft and crumbly, made with raw cow’s milk, in the Ribblesdale valley in Yorkshire by a single surviving producer
  • Red Leicester, the industrial version of which is light years away from the artisanal version, made with raw cow’s milk in the Sparkenhoe region of Leicestershire by a single surviving producer
  • Caerphilly, like a fresh and moist Cheddar—the industrial version is much harder—made with raw cow’s milk in Wales by two remaining traditional producers. One of the many cheeses requested in the famous Monty Python Cheese Shop sketch.

The cheeses will be paired with a selection of spirits by Velier of Genoa.

Event bookable online until 12 pm on September 19. For bookings during the event, check availability at the Events Reception.
