We Talked Cheese

We had a wonderful evening at No 42 the London HQ for the Guild of Fine Food, with the focus very much on cheese.

For our London event we wanted to create a special evening that ensured everyone learnt something and also gave producers an opportunity to showcase their products as part of the meal. It was wonderful to see attendees travel from all over the country to attend the event, down from Yorkshire, up from Devon people really did travel far and wide to join us.

We recently had the pleasure of visiting SmokeWorks in Cambridge, as they had kindly invited us to come and check it out. So it was a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a trip to Cambridge to combine food and culture, who doesn’t love a trip to the Fitzwilliam Museum?

I wanted to go to networking events that served wonderful food and were specifically focused on the food industry. Having worked in the food industry for a number of years I felt that there was a gap in the market for our events.
