I have worked in the Dairy industry for 15 years. Having started in cheese retail I moved on to supplying some of the UK’s largest hotel groups with cheese before going to train as a cheesemaker & cheesemonger.
Wanting to know more about the cheese itself led me to The School of Artisan Food where I trained as a cheesemaker before working for the school managing and teaching the dairy courses, whilst also taking care of my own herd of dairy goats. I now run a dairy consultancy looking after all elements of cheesemaking, artisan production & retail. I am also a Training Partner for The Academy of Cheese & teach at Nottingham Trent University alongside independent cookery schools. My passion lies with all things rural, so much so that I even got married in my wellies! When not in the dairy I’m normally found relaxing with my chaotic family in the Worcestershire countryside eating cheese and drinking wine.
