Virtual Event - Selecting, Aging, and Tasting British Cheese with Neal's Yard Dairy

February 6, 2021: Visit the Neal’s Yard Dairy cheese caves in London.

Neal’s Yard Dairy is the London-based company that has been Zingerman’s sole source of Great British cheese for nearly thirty years. They started in 1979 as the actual shop that inspired Monty Python’s famous cheese skit. They’ve grown to be the world’s leading exporter of British farmhouse cheeses and a huge, positive force on the British food scene. If cheeses like Montgomery’s Farmhouse Cheddar or Colston Bassett Stilton are familiar to you it’s thanks to them. The fact that British food is no longer the butt of jokes like it used to be 25 years ago is, in part, due to their passion and hard work.

Jason Hinds is a director at Neal’s Yard Dairy, which is British English for “owner.”  He’s spent decades traveling around Britain, visiting cheese makers, working with them to get as much flavor (or, as Jason would call it, flavour) out of their cheese as possible. He also selects cheese, matching the right cheese with the right client. We’ll learn how he manages to taste dozens of cheeses a day and still have room for dinner. He’ll also let you know how a pro chooses one cheddar over another.

All you'll need are two details: the address where we can ship the food, and the email address where we can keep the recipient informed about what's to come as the event grows near.

Logistics
The class will start at 3 pm ET on Saturday, February 6, 2021 and last about an hour.
We’ll ship enough cheese for a generous tasting with four people (or for one person to have leftovers after the event). You'll receive them by Thursday, February 4.  Try to not eat them all before the class!
The class will take place over Zoom. You'll need a device to connect to Zoom and a high speed internet connection to attend. We'll include instructions getting connected to Zoom in the box (and we’ll email the instructions, too).
The event is hosted by Zingerman’s with special guest stars.

What food is included in your shipment
Three classic British cheeses and an American cheddar to compare for a total of over two pounds of cheese, plus a box of Irish Brown Bread Crackers and a loaf of Zingerman’s Artisan Bread.
