October Members Meeting with Andy Swinscoe from Courtyard Dairy Settle

Andy Swinscoe was our special guest this month on Thursday 18th October. Many of you already know that Andy from the Courtyard Dairy near Settle, who are:  Cheesemonger of the Year (Farm Shop & Deli Awards 2018) Featured in ‘The Most Amazing Cheese Shops in the World’ (The Daily Telegraph 2015, No. 7) The Best Food Retailer – Finalist (BBC Radio 4 Food & Farming Awards 2014). This should be a cracking evening. 

Andy gave a very enthusiastic talk about the history of  British farmhouse cheese. He charted the decline of a once major industry to the recent rebirth and the reasons why. All this was backed up by samples for tasting.

The meeting was fully attended and extra seats had to be brought in.
