Last year I went along to Homage2Fromage at Dock St Markets, and last week I made a return for their 7th cheesey event. They now meet at The Adelphi in Leeds, which is a great venue for it. Large enough to hold everyone, but still with an intimate atmostphere and a great mish mash of old furniture.
The event is growing rapidly and I think it’s popularity has taken the organisers, Vickie and Nick by surprise. An audience of 80 braved the Challenging Cheeses month. Wow, and what a stinker it was too. Delicious though. Cheeses like Stinking Bishop, Taleggio and Reblechon featured, and thank goodness that the taste is far better than the smell! They were actually all fairly mild in flavour and not nearly as offensive as their stench. I think it lingered on me on the way home though – no one sat next to me on the train, despite it being packed!
Homage2Fromage is a great event. Informal, interesting and fun, and everyone there seems to be a friendly sort, so it’s great and social too.
I was there to take some pictures, so here’s a selection (click to enlarge):
