Cheese Slices

FOOD TELEVISION – Saturdays from 1 January, 7.30pm

Will Studd returns in an all new series of Cheese Slices in response to the consumer led revolution happening in the world of cheese. There is a growing interest in how cheese is made, where it comes from and an encouraging and exciting global resurgence in artisanal cheese-making. We are demanding tastier more interesting cheeses with distinctive flavours, textures and aromas, but to recognise them we need to know what to look for. Join Will as he travels to the dramatic mountainous cheese-making regions of Norway, Scotland and Piedmont, and the rolling green pastures of Germany, Denmark and Wales with rare, behind-the-scenes footage of traditional cheese-making in Provence and Sicily, and a special look at artisan cheese making in Tasmania. Cheese Slices will stimulate you to eat, encourage you to travel and most importantly help you choose the best cheese to keep the revolution going!

Saturdays from 14 March, 7pm on Food Television
