My Sunday Photo – International Cheese Awards

Last Updated on July 24, 2018 by HodgePodgeDays

This week I spent some time at the International Cheese Awards which is part of the Nantwich Show in Cheshire. The International Cheese Awards are the biggest dairy event in the UK, if not the world. This year 5000 cheeses were judged and I was one of the lucky judges.

It was my second year judging and I’ve learned so much from going to the awards over the years. You can read my write up of the day here.

At lunch La Guilde Internationale des Fromagers inducted several new members into their ranks, including Chef James Martin. I managed to take a few snaps and also filmed that bit, you can watch the clips here.

The International Cheese Awards are always a privilege to get involved with. Sadly it’s all over for another year, but I have a fridge full of cheese to enjoy in the meantime.

  1. Oh I must have missed that Nantwich Show which is such a shame as I was down in Cheshire last week. It must have been brilliant to have tasted all those cheeses. Great photo ;D

  2. Oh I love the Nantwich Show, and used to attend every year many years ago as I worked for the British Cheese Board! One of my best jobs ever, I think!
    By the end of the second day there is a distinct cheesy waft coming from the tents, isn’t there!
    How fantastic to be a cheese judge – what a great job!

  3. Did you get to eat a massive amount of cheese? It sounds fantastic!! Hope you’re doing ok xx
