International Cheese Awards 2019 – Nantwich, UK

Six weeks ago, if you’d asked me to describe my “happy place,” I would have talked about my wedding day. Now that I’ve experienced the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch, it’s a little too close to call.

If you don’t like cheese, this is where you stop reading (there are plenty of other Fork My Piehole posts that will work for you instead so check those out).

Picture yourself in a white room draped with cloths, grapes, figs, you’re handed some Prosecco, and most importantly there’s more cheese than you could ever eat. Are you in heaven? No, you’re at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch. And yes, this is an event that already happened, but in just two short weeks the real deal is coming to a field near you if you live in Nantwich: the International Cheese & Dairy Awards 2019, and guess who’s been invited to be a part of the judging panel.

Pasta making with Tutti A Tavola 

Ciao! Today, we make-a some-a past-a with Silvana from Tutti-a-Tavola. And I promise I won’t type in that poor Italian/English stereotypical phonetic hybrid any more. Promise.

Based in West London, Silvana runs pasta making classes every week, rotating the type of pasta each month to keep you on your toes. Interesting! She covers both the glutenny and gluten-free pastas from scratch: Tuesday and Saturday evenings for the glutenny amongst us and gluten-free on Sunday lunchtime. We opted for the gluten ‘standard’ pasta, and the flavour of the month was Tricolore Garganelli! Huzzayy! Colourful pasta fun!
