After the success of the last Big Cheese Taste Off, held on the Grain Barge (write up here), we’ve been eagerly awaiting the next installment. Luckily we don’t have to wait too much longer, as The Kings Arms on Whiteladies Road will be hosting round two on Tuesday, October 19th. Read the rest of this entry »

Another action-packed October weekend! Read on to find out what’s going on in the foodie world in Bristol on October 9th and 10th… Read the rest of this entry »

The first weekend of October (already?!) brings with it a wealth of food and drink-related events, mostly courtesy of South Gloucestershire’s 6th ‘Taste’ Local Food & Drink Festival. Read the rest of this entry »

Following the success of the tasting session held on the Grain Barge a few months back, Bristol Beer Factory have decided to host another tasting and pairing evening, this time at their brewery in Southville. Read the rest of this entry »

With cheese being bought by 98% of British households, and over 700 named cheeses produced in the UK, our love of the stuff is evident. We consume over 700,000 tonnes of cheese per year…but how are we eating it, and are we actually appreciating our local produce?

Wednesday, May 12th will see four British names coming together for The Big Cheese Taste Off. Described as “the ULTIMATE in food and drink pairing”, the evening will see the Grain Barge playing host to Bristol Beer Factory, Trethowan’s Dairy Shop, The Orchard Pig and Hallgarten Wines as they ask the question:

“What do you drink with cheese? Beer, wine or cider?”

Trethowan’s will be supplying a variety of locally produced cheeses, which have been matched to beers, wines and ciders provided by the other three companies…and they want YOU to answer the question. For only £10 per ticket, you can spend your Wednesday evening learning a little about how to match food and drink, taste some new beers, wines and ciders, and decide which works best with each of the cheeses. Bristol Beer Factory appear to have decided that it’s the beers…then again, they’re a little biased 😉

The evening is one in a series of “Taste Offs” that are apparently planned, and will be held at the Grain Barge on Hotwells Road on Wednesday, May 12th, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 each on a first come, first served basis, and are available from the Grain Barge, The Bristol Beer Factory and from Orchard Pig.

I think this may have to replace my original plan of the regular quiz night next Wednesday. My prediction is that cider will most definitely get my vote… 🙂
