The last cheese tasting night at Red Lion was held on Thursday 17th October.
It was a pleasure to welcome a few new contestants. Geoff & Jane along with Rob & Sarah, though due to parish council duties Sarah did not arrive early enough to see the new king being crowned. There were a total of 13 entries on the night which ensured that everyone’s taste buds were put to test.
Seal with his favourite Smoked Mozzarella was last. (It shows not all Italian know much about cheeses.)
In third place was Geoff with his Giuseppe’s Bella Puzzolente. In Second Place were Ken and Claudie choice of Gorgonzola. The winner for the 1st time ever was Mass, who normally finishes last with his previous choices but thanks to Sarah and Rob who helped to bring Teston Al Barolo which was infused with grapefruit and wrapped in grape skin. A big thank you must also go to Toby from the Cheese Plate shop in Buntingford who helps many of our contestants with their choices.
The next theme is GERMAN CHEESES!!!!!!! and the tasting is on 21st November so you still have three weeks to search for your choice of cheese. Thank you again to Abbie for being such a splendid host and all who came along on the night. Hope to see you on the 21st.
