Cheese star Judy to talk at cookery school

Have your say

COUNTRY Warmth in Norton will welcome Judy Bell from the family-run artisan cheese makers Shepherds Purse of Thirsk, to its cookery school next week.

The cheese makers produce a portfolio of multi award-winning, traditionally handmade cheeses, including their best selling Yorkshire Blue, Yorkshire Fettle, Olde York and their latest innovation, Harrogate Blue.

Judy will talk to guests about her life as a cheese maker and demonstrate how to create the perfect cheese board on Wednesday, October 10.

She said: “We hope food lovers from the region will attend the event to sample our cheese range and learn a few tips and tricks of the trade to create an impressive cheese centrepiece.”

Shepherds Purse launched in 1988 at various farmers markets and the brand and product range has grown successfully ever since. The cheeses are now sold at major supermarkets, some on a national basis, either pre-packed or on the delicatessen along with specialist cheese shops nationwide.

Sara Ashby-Arnold from Country Warmth said: “We are delighted to welcome Judy to Country Warmth. Her knowledge of cheese is unprecedented and you can’t fail to be impressed by her journey as a self-taught cheese maker.”
