Attention cheese lovers – there’s an all-you-can-eat party coming your way.
Homage2Fromage is a monthly cheese club with parties happening across the North.
The parties, taking place in Leeds, Sheffield, Harrogate and Manchester, are held in different venues but they all feature guest speakers, cheese-based games and the opportunity to eat as much cheese as you want.
Each party has a different theme, ranging from cheddar to regional cheeses, with a range of accompaniments, including pickles, crackers and wine.
Co-founder Nick explains: ‘The aim of the club is to celebrate great cheese in an informal fun way – this is not about snobby cheese and wine tastings, it is about sharing one of the greatest foods ever, in a simple, relaxed way.
‘Homage2Fromage helps you discover new cheese, meet like-minded cheese fans and hear some of the amazing stories behind cheese and cheesemaking.
‘If you are passionate about cheese, curious about the many different kinds of cheese out there, how it’s made, where it comes from, who makes it, why something so simple can be so diverse, so versatile, so delicious – then this is the club for you.’
He also explains that the night starts with him and his fellow organiser Vickie shouting ‘Cheese’ before guests can choose which ones they want to sample.
The cheeses aren’t labelled with names but are numbered so later in the evening, they tell you a little more about each one.
The next event ‘The Cheeses of Wales’, takes place in Leeds tomorrow, followed by Sheffield on 15 May, Manchester on 20 May and Harrogate on 23 May.
Tickets start at just £15. That’s £15 for as much cheese as you can handle.
It truly sounds brie-llant.
Although all the parties are currently in the North, they could expand further south in the future so watch out for a party near you.
