A word from our Cheese Guy, Doug White…
“On Sunday September 15, I’m on the bandstand in The Pantiles as part of the Harvest Food Festival Weekend! In a hugely self-indulgent and autobiographical talk, I’ll be chatting about all things cheese, including the five varieties that have been pivotal in my life, with beer pairings to match. If you fancy finding out more about me and my love of cheeses, pop by and say hi…”
Alex’s beer of the month
As part of our ‘AuGuezeSt’ celebrations, we were lucky enough to get hold of some great beers from Garden Path Fermentation, based in Washington’s Skagit Valley. These guys focus on producing fantastic mixed-fermentation and wild beers, which are blended, aged and produced using locally-sourced and foraged ingredients. We’ve a lovely range in stock, including ‘Prime Barrel Age’ – a Belgian blonde ale, barrel-aged and blended, and naturally conditioned with local honey.
Crown & Queue
Doug used to work with Crown & Queue’s managing director, ‘pork whisperer and fearless heroine’ Adrienne Eiser Treeby in a certain cheese shop in Covent Garden. Adrienne comes from a cheffing background, and was always talking about the lack of quality cured meats coming out of the UK – so, she started making her own. She goes out of her way to uncover traditional recipes then tweaking them for the fullest flavour, is campaigning for the general public to consider where their meats come from, and even made us our own bespoke product from Crown & Queue last year!
