What we do
A few words about The Cheese Tasting Company
Inspirational, fun and delicious, The Cheese Tasting Company's events will introduce your guests to the fabulous world of artisanal cheese from Britain and the Continent.
The Cheese Tasting Company is led by bestselling author Ned Palmer. Nedʼs 20 years of experience in cellars, dairies and farms, his friendships with cheese makers and talent with words allow him to bring the world of cheese to full, fascinating life.
Tastings range from large corporate events to small private functions. We can provide cheese talks, informal interactive sessions, or simply provide a beautiful selection of cheeses served by an expert monger to liven up your party.
The Green, Green Grass of Farms
It’s fairly obvious, isn’t it. Quality food tastes great when it's made by people who care for their environment and their animals in equal measure. Happy animals mean excellent cheese. At The Cheese Tasting Company, we bring you produce to taste that is always made sustainably.
Fairness, Integrity & Quality.
The Cheese Tasting Company is here to bring great cheese to the people, to reveal how delicious, how complex, how fascinating cheese can be, to introduce new cheeses and rediscover old ones, to boldly explore new pairings of cheese with wines, beers, sparkling wines or anything that takes our fancy, to inspire and incite our new friends to discover new cheeses for themselves and give them the tools to do so. And to have fun. Lots of fun.
We do this with fairness, integrity and quality.
We pay suppliers, and charge clients a fair price for products and services, reflecting the work and skill involved.
We will never over promise, whether it’s to a supplier or to a client. If we say it, then we’ll do it and we will do it well.
Everything we bring to a tasting will be excellent, the cheese, the drinks, the breads, the meats and pickles. Guaranteed.
“Ned stole the show! I have never seen so many colleagues crowded around at any of our events, they were captivated. The cheese selection was so delicious and so perfect, even the non cheese-lovers were tempted.
A complete professional, and charming host, Ned tantalised the crowd into a cheese trance.”
