Yesterday me and the Mr went to the Artisan Cheese Fair situated in picturesque Melton Mowbray. (You can find details Here if you would like to visit.) With around 200 different cheeses and over 50 of the top cheese makers in the country all in one place – it was bound to be a trip I was going to enjoy!
I thought I’d share a few pics with you lovely lot and I hope they inspire you to go next year!

This sign for Celtic Promise Cheese wasn’t lying… it stank to high heaven!! One of the strongest cheeses I have ever eaten and it was the gift that just keeps giving. It lingered for a good 20 minutes after! I’m still not sure whether I liked it or hated it haha.
