Food for thought

bread and cheese

With Melton Mowbray’s Artisan Cheese Fair under a fortnight away and Real Bread Week coming up in May,  what else would the Girls Around Town be talking about next weekend but bread and cheese?!

Matthew will be joining June, Tina and Sue in the first hour of the show with news of the Artisan Cheese Fair, which takes place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April. Up to 80 cheese makers, some of whom produce the UK’s rarest cheeses, are expected to attend, with a packed programme of talks, tastings and demonstrations on offer from 10am to 4pm each day.

He’ll be sharing the results of this year’s Artisan Cheese Awards, together with details of what else visitors can expect to see, try and buy – wine, cakes, beer, chutneys and of course Melton Mowbray’s famous Pork Pie to name just a few!

In the second hour, Rhiannon will be on the line from The Epsom Bakehouse to talk about how she turned a life-long passion for home baking into a business.

Find out what a Bread Angel is, what makes ‘real’ bread so different from the everyday loaves sold in supermarkets and how you can try making your own using the free, easy recipes shared on her website.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday. And in the meantime, here’s a little food for thought – British consumers munch their way through over 11.5 billion sandwiches a year which, if they were laid end to end, would go around the world about 44 times…
