Hugh Padfield of The Bath Soft Cheese Company, on Organic Cheese Making, to Include Cheese and Wine pairing at Kelston Park Farm Shop. Ticket price £20*
This will be our first post-lockdown adventure! Come with us to the lovely Kelston Park Farm Shop where Hugh will give us an insight into his family’s traditional approach to raising a small organic dairy herd and artisanal, handmade cheesemaking, resulting in multi-award-winning cheeses. Hugh will be joined by Richard Guest of independent Talking Wines who will offer tastings of recommended wines to pair with a selection of delicious cheeses.
Afterwards, from 8pm, we are invited to stay for a casual supper from Hugh’s cafe menu, at £9.50, and to enjoy more of Richard’s wine with that. Sales of cheese and wine to take home (or for later collection) will be available and a commission on the evening’s sales will be paid to party funds.
The Farmshop and Cafe are fully accessible with reserved close-by parking, and there is plenty of outdoor space, should the prevailing Government advice on coronavirus prevent us from gathering indoors.
True to the ethos of the Bath Cheese Company, all but the Wyfe of Bath cheese is made with organic calf rennet.
To make the most of this sampling opportunity, we strongly recommend you make arrangements to share transport. All members, registered supporters and guests are most welcome.
* A limited number of 'supported places' (no cost), are available for those who would otherwise find this event unaffordable. To receive a ticket, simply email with Supported Place in the subject to [email protected]
NB Our current plan is that this event will operate under The Bath Soft Cheese Company's strict COVID 19 protocol: A maximum of 36 guests will be accommodated in the Cafe, at widely spaced tables of 4 or 6, with plenty of ventilation. Once inside, guests will be required to remain at their table, unless visiting the toilets. All orders will be taken, and food and drink delivered to the tables by staff wearing PPE and observing the Cafe's sanitising rules. Orders for cheese and wine will also be taken from the tables. We trust these necessary adjustments to our event will not diminish your enjoyment of the evening, and we very much look forward to seeing you, in person, on 8th July.
