Meet the Makers at Motcomb Street


Throughout the month of May, we’ll be joining the London Cheese Project in celebrating London Cheese Month. Across the city, artisan producers and cheesemongers will be showcasing their finest produce at a series of tastings, talks and workshops.

We’ve invited five British cheesemakers, (and their cheeses), to join us in Motcomb St. to share their cheeses and their stories.

Meet the Maker: Julie Cheyney from White Wood Dairy

Thursday 16th May 2019, 10am-3pm

Julie Cheyney is the first cheesemaker to win the James Aldridge Award for Raw Milk Cheese twice. Come and meet Julie, and try her cheeses: St. Jude and St. Cera. Saintly by name, but wickedly good!

Meet the Maker: The Bath Soft Cheese Co. and Julianna Sedli from The Old Cheese Room

Friday 17th May 2019, 10am-3pm

In quite a treat for the turophile, we have not one, but two cheesemakers with us today. Sample cheeses including the likes of: Baronet, Wyfe of Bath, Bath Blue, The Merry Wyfe and Bath Soft.

Meet the Maker: Blackwoods Cheese Company

Saturday 18th May 2019, 10am-3pm

Meet the Maker: Marcus Ferguson from Feltham's Farm

Saturday 25th May 2019, 10am-3pm

A renegade by name, and a renegade by nature. Marcus Fergusson is a relatively new cheesemaker, but his burgeoning trophy cabinet would make you believe otherwise. Come and try the notoriously punchy Renegade Monk and meet the maker!
