SLOW FOOD WORKSHOP: Cheesemaking from Then to Now. Get Your Taste Buds Ready!

Ribblesdale Cheese in the Yorkshire Dales is a small business specialising in goat and sheep cheeses; they also make an award-winning Wensleydale. Cheesemaker Iona Hill knows a great deal about cheese and cheese production, and has exciting suggestions for eating her delicious and unique products.

As she takes you on an entertaining tour through the seven different types of cheese-making you will be sampling rare cheeses, exploring the difference between young and mature cheeses and enjoying prepared dishes like goat curd with beetroot. She will inspire you with a recipe for making a simple cheese at home! You will also be able to experiment with different soft and alcoholic drinks to accompany the cheeses.
