THE SUN SHINES ON ORKNEY CHEDDAR, AT TASTE OF EDINBURGH

18 Aug 2011

We enjoyed a great weekend at the Taste of Edinburgh Festival recently.

Bright sunshine everyday and temperatures touching 24 degrees meant the festival was packed full and, thankfully, didn’t turn people off a sample of our extraordinary cheddar - We managed to distribute over 26,000 samples!

In addition, at selected times of the day, we brought out The Orkney Cheddar Cookies and Cheese Straws with Cumin, created by Tom Kitchin and Dominic Jack. Needless to say, the 3,000 canapés we prepared went very quickly.

Coupled with over 700 sales of 200g blocks and some amazing comments, ranging from the impassionate to the bizarre, the whole weekend was a great success… and we were even visited by another famous chef, in addition to our own… Jean-Christophe Novelli.
