Judging at the International Cheese Awards
Best day ever judging at the International Cheese Awards in Nantwich today. Incredible to think that over 5,000 cheeses had been entered from all over the world. I only had to judge 24 in the class 'best cheese made by a novice cheesemaker with less than 5 years experience'. This was a great category as there was everything from soft cheese to hard/blue and from goats cheese to buffalo cheese. A fabulous lunch awaited us (my cheese friend Jo from the Little Welsh Cheese Company) as we sat and chatted with cheesemakers from as far afield as Australia.
