Cheese and Zoom
Or whichever platform you prefer
Virtual tastings make a great social event for your staff, clients or prospectives. No group is too small, and an online tasting is a nice way to meet up with friends and family while keeping everyone safe.
Ned will join you and your guests through the awesome 2020-omnipresent power of Zoom (or whichever video conferencing platform you prefer). He will give a talk lasting around an hour and a half, with plenty of space for questions and general cheese chat.
Every tasting includes plenty of useful info about choosing and serving cheese, and matching with drinks, as well as loads of fun stories about cheese and cheesemakers.
Choose your cheese theme
My tastings usually have a theme. You could choose a tasting featuring some of the cheeses and stories from my book – A Cheesemonger's History of the British Isles - focusing on the history of cheese making in Britain and Ireland. For the internationally minded cheese fan there is the ever-popular France v. Britain tasting - comparing and contrasting the cheeses of two great cheesemaking nations. For craft beer enthusiasts there is The Magic of Cheese and Beer, a tasting full of beer, cheese, gods, goddess, myths and magic.
What's in a Cheese Tasting virtual kit?
You and each of your guests will receive:
Six superb kinds of cheese (enough for two people to enjoy generous servings for the tastings, and then some).
Cheese biscuits and fruit paste.
*Two full bottles of specially selected wine, one white, and one of red (if you take the wine option). These have been chosen for their excellence in cheese matching.
All packaging and delivery charges within the UK are included.
*If you don't want to choose the wine option, we will be delighted to make some recommendations.
What about the packaging?
The cheese packaging is fully biodegradable/recyclable. It includes insulation that keeps your cheese cold and fresh.
The insulation keeps everything chilled for up to 48 hours, so you don't need to be present for the delivery.
