The rare chance to create your own flavour cheese is now up for grabs for Worcestershire cheese lovers.
Worcester-based Croome Cuisine have joined forces with Webbs Garden Centre at Wychbold to offer the opportunity for cheese fans to let their taste buds tingle and imagination take flight.
This year, cheese maker Nick Hodgetts from Croome Cuisine is celebrating 25 years making award winning cheese. He specializes in creating innovative flavours of cheese such as Worcester Sauce and Shallots, Hereford Hop and Scrumpy and Crunchy Apple. Last year Nick made an exclusive cheese with figs and honey produced from bee hives in the gardens at Webbs, Wychbold which proved very popular with customers.
Webbs Chairman, Ed Webb said, ?Our fig and honey cheese was a big hit so we thought it would be a great idea to let customers come up with their own ideas for cheese flavours. We are looking for a wonderful flavour combination to be added to Cheddar cheese. It could be a taste you love, an iconic Worcestershire ingredient or an unusual flavour you think would taste incredible in a cheese.?
Nick Hodgetts added, “We are thrilled to be supporting Webbs with this competition. At Croome Cuisine we support creativity and innovation. We encourage flavour suggestions from staff, family, friends and customers we meet at farmers markets and shows. We are looking forward to seeing some fantastic flavour combinations from Webbs customers….let your imagination run wild!”
The winning entry will be made into cheese to be sold at Webbs this year and the winner will have the chance to see it being made at Croome Cuisine in Whittington, Worcester. The winner will also be awarded a 2.8kg truckle of their own flavoured cheese.
Entry forms are available in store with the closing date of 31st March.
