This year in October, I was invited to be a judge for the World Cheese Awards! (Yes, it was as epic as it sounds.) This podcast episode is a recap of my experiences there.

The World Cheese Awards are put on my the Guild of Fine Food, and they’re in a new country each year. This past year it was in Bergamo, Italy, and 3,800 cheeses were tasted!

I talk with Mary Quicke, of Quicke’s Cheddar, and she describes why she developed the professional cheese qualification in the UK, the Academy of Cheese.

I also got the chance to catch up with Jason Hinds, Sales Director at Neals Yard Dairy. As a member of the international super jury of the awards, he has a unique perspective on the goings on of the event.

So, which cheese won? You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out!!

It’s a short and cheerful episode. And on this festive note, I want to say happy holidays to you all! This is my last episode before Christmas and the New Year. Thanks, as always, for listening, and please rate/review if you liked it. Keep it quirky!
