Cheese Tasting Evening

Last week, we held a Cheese Tasting Evening at the Bridge Inn in Topsham and what a lovely evening it was. 

It was a sellout event with 50 people eager to taste cheese from Topsham's own Country Cheeses.
The cheeses available were: Sheep's Tor; Sharpham Brie; Beenleigh Blue; Keen's cheddar; Rachel and Trelawny - all different and flavoursome in their own ways.

As well as the 6 tasters which came with crackers, there were scrumptious breadrolls to go with cheddar at the end of the evening if anyone was still peckish, and a blind taste competition where 3 other cheeses had to be identified.

Our good friend, Dave Pollard, produced a cheese related quiz and other puzzles to keep people pondering during the evening. He also did a rather splendid job of compering the evening.

Thank you to everyone who supported the event. We raised £304.15 and enjoyed an evening of lovely company in the process :-)
