There was a day last year that I will never forget. It was a day that saw me eat my body weight in cheese and discover that I actually like Irish whiskey with cheese, who’d have thought it? Well my friends, it’s back, and it’s bigger than ever. The International Cheese Awards 2015.
The record for most entries to the awards has been smashed with a whopping 4592 entries to compete for one of the coveted awards. There are entries from all over the world competing for lots of awards but, most importantly, the prize of ‘Supreme Champion’, which was won last year by Colston Bassett Dairy for their whole blue stilton.
The International Cheese Awards is part of the Nantwich Show and takes place on the 29th July so there isn’t long to wait. You can get tickets here. The cheese marquee is bigger than ever built to house all the different producers from the big guns to the small independents, desperate to show you their wares. As well as the mountains of cheese you will also see an exceptional line up of celebrity chefs with James Martin, Will Holland, Jonathan Harrison and Sean Wilson taking to the stage to do cooking demonstrations.
