British Cheese Awards to celebrate 25th anniversary with bumper show

The British Cheese Awards 2018, taking place on 30th May at the Royal Bath & West Show in Somerset, expects to showcase a bumper 1,000 cheeses to celebrate its 25th anniversary

Judging for the awards takes place from 9am and members of the public will be able to observe the process from a dedicated area. Experts will score the cheeses on presentation, texture, aroma, flavour and balance, with overall scores determining whether a cheese receives gold, silver and bronze medals.

Last year the competition attracted entries from 148 cheesemakers from over 54 counties. For 2018, 90 judges will taste 136 classes of cheese in nine categories.

As well as the awards there will also be the Cheese Marquee, where British cheesemakers who have entered the awards will be selling their products. There will be a variety of cheese tastings and talks planned throughout the day.

Peter Michell, chairman of the British Cheese Awards said, “This is a great event for owners of delis, farm shops and other food shops to visit as you see the great breadth of cheeses that are made in the UK today, and you'll also get the chance to meet some of the cheesemakers.

“As well as the awards, visitors can view the Cheese Marquee where some of the cheesemakers who have entered the awards will be selling their delicious cheeses, making it a great sourcing and tasting opportunity for fine food shop owners.”
