Chitter chatter, nitter natter. All about cheese
The tasting of Champions: Cheese & Wine Pairings with Honest Grapes
We had Fred and Clémence from Honest Grapes join our team for a mammoth tasting. The parameters were simple: you bring the wine, we’ll bring the cheese...let's make some pairing magic.
Seasonality of Cheese
Yes! Cheese has seasons too! Just like fruit and veg, the flavour of cheese can completely change depending on the time of year. As the seasons change, so does the food on offer to our lovely cows, sheep and goats which in turn affects the flavour of their milk.
Introducing our master of wine
As of April 2021 there are only 418 Masters of Wine in the world, 210 of which are based in the UK! Essentially it’s the ultimate accolade in the wine world and we are very lucky to be working with Alistair Cooper.
best of british made cheese
One of the (many) things that gets me so ruddy excited about British cheese is the sheer variety of wonderful artisan cheese that is now being made in the UK. Find our British alternatives to continental classics.
choosing your cheddar
Ask anyone in the world to name one cheese, and there is no doubt the most popular answer would be cheddar. It is the cheese that most of us, certainly in the UK, probably eat weekly, if not daily, and it is usually found sliced in a sandwich, or grated on a Jacket Potato.
WELCOME TO VACHERIN
mont d'or SEASON
Here at Cheese Geek HQ, we talk a lot about the big ‘S’…Seasonality. One of the amazing quirks of artisan cheese is that, just like fruit and veg, it is seasonal. And the ultimate seasonal cheese has to be Vacherin without a doubt!
How to create the best Christmas cheese board
We all have a whole host of traditions when it comes to Christmas, from putting the star on top of the tree to serving up a feast for all the family. But would Christmas really be Christmas without cheese?
WINE AND CHEESE
Find out about the age old combination, and what wines really work with which cheeses, with the Cheese Geek talking you through his favourite cheese and wine pairings and why they work.
what is vegetarian cheese?
Many will be confused as to what a vegetarian cheese is. Or rather what a non-vegetarian cheese is! The central character to this conversation is rennet. Rennet is one of the four key ingredients in making cheese.
can you freeze cheese?
We get lots of questions about cheese here at TCG towers and pride ourselves in sharing our knowledge with the masses. One we keep coming across is the age-old question; can cheese be frozen?
CHEESE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Whilst we are official cheese heads here at Geek HQ, coming in a close second is our drive to minimise our environmental impact. We’ve worked tirelessly to ensure that this packaging is sustainably sourced, easily recyclable, reusable and biodegradable.
Does cheese give you nightmares?
We like bringing you only the hard-hitting cheese content from around the world. And so today I’m bringing you, perhaps, the biggest of them all. Does cheese cause nightmares? And its slightly younger brother, does cheese give you strange dreams?
