OK we have not had a Competition for a time so how about this one to whet your appetites in 2015!
For those of you who remember a few years ago we held a couple of dinners at Winterdale Shaw the Cheesemakers on the top or Wrotham Hill. They produce a very fine un-pasteurised Cheddar in their dairy and it is matured in their own cheese cellars…
Well we are glad to report this will be happening again at a date and venue yet to be confirmed in September/October 2015.
However before then we will need to make the cheese along with Robin and Carla Betts. The cheese has to then mature for the 8-9 months required in the cave/cellar before we can then cook and serve it!
So this is what will happen on a cheese making day in January/February 2015 ( a mutually convenient day for all parties) you will be invited to join Robin & Carla in the dairy to make the cheese that will then get used by Hari and his team at the special underground supper later in the year.
This is a truly remarkable prize and there will be two places up for grabs with the cheese-making day.
Then for the proposed dinners each prize winner will be invited with a guest of their choice to either the Friday night or Saturday night dinner and enjoy the fruits of their days labour as you will join the other paying guests to sample a four course dinner using the cheese you have actually helped produce!
To enter it could not be simpler you will just need complete the following form to be entered into the prize draw.
Your details will be used by Hari and Winterdale Shaw to notify you of future events and offers so do not enter unless you are happy for this to happen!
You will need to submit the form by Friday 12th December 2014. The draw will be made at random by Monday December 15th and the winners will be notified and suitable dates arranged to then make the cheese.
The two winning names will spend a full day making the cheese and then be invited to attend the Hari dinner later in 2015 to sample the fruits of their labour – a very unique prize I think you will agree.
