CHRISTMAS EVENT – Cheese Tasting with Emma Young
Our (now traditional) CHEESE event this year will celebrate the release of this wonderful new book by Emma Young, The Cheese Wheel. With experience as a cheesemonger, cheese maker and cheese awards judge, Emma Young brings her comprehensive knowledge to the page in this innovative flavour-based guide to cheese. Each cheese profile includes fascinating notes on its origins, what drink it pairs best with, why you must try it, and other cheeses it complements for your next cheese board. So, whether you consider yourself a cheese connoisseur or are simply curious about the differences between a Cheddar, Comte and Caerphilly, this is an essential companion to have on your shelves. You will try six cheeses from Emma’s wheel on the evening, so make sure you turn up with an appetite!
David’s has a long history of hosting visiting authors and speakers; from the bookfairs and ideas fairs of the 1970s and 80s, the later series of public debates and to our ongoing seasonal programmes.
Recent speakers include Ray Mears, Jennifer Saint, Melissa Hemsley, David Hepworth, Ione Gamble, Alexander McCall Smith, Elly Griffiths, Alison Weir, Merlin Sheldrake and Tim Anderson – among many others. Most events will be held in our cafe which turns into a bright, welcoming space in the evening. For larger events we work with a variety of venues around Letchworth including the Cloisters, Central Methodist Church, Broadway Theatre and the theatre at St Francis’ College.
