Here comes the 'Great British Cheese Festival'...Some call it 'Glastonbury for the Food World'

The British give the world a number of excellent cheese, even a Frenchman like me can recognize that.

This week-end (September 29 and 30), the best producers get their moment of fame at the Great British Cheese Festival. Some call the Festival 'Glastonbury for the Food World'.

The 2007 Edition takes place at Millets Farm Centre in Frilford, Oxfordshire.

Amongst the Events offered, I noticed a Cheese Making Demo (45 Minutes) courtesy of Delamere Dairy who specializes in Goat Cheese.
If all the Cheese Tasting makes you thirsty, whisky buffs might want to check The Dram Busters and have 'a rare opportunity to sample 6 malt whiskies from the Milroy’s of Soho selection'.

I believe that 'bit of a Blur' Alex James will be there, taking the wraps off his first cheese creation.

If you are in attendance, send us your impressions, a couple pictures would be nice.
