This month Clare has been in London judging at the Great Taste Awards 2022, tasting everything from popcorn and honey to olive oil and fish pie in search of delicious products worthy of a gold star or more!
Last month saw the post-pandemic return of Speciality & Fine Food Fair at London's Olympia - a vibrant gathering of those passionate about delicious food and drink. At the show we were thrilled for Slate to win the accolade of 'Independent Retailer of the Year'.
Throughout the current crisis caused by COVID-19, here at Slate we have been keen to play our part in supporting Britain's small cheese makers and dairy farmers. We have been championing the incredible cheeses made across Britain and promoting the flow of artisan cheese from farms to you, the nation's cheese lovers. However as lockdown lingers on, it's time to do more.
Whether you are a cheese connoisseur or keen to dip your taste buds into the world of cheese, our monthly Cheese Club box will bring a mouth-watering selection of artisanal cheese direct to your door. Read on for seven great reasons to join the club!
Last week the Guild of Fine Food "Shop of the Year 2019" competition reached its exciting finale with a wonderful presentation evening in Harrogate. We were absolutely thrilled to receive the "Best Newcomer" award! Just eighteen months since launching Slate, we are extremely proud to receive this recognition for our new business and how we seek to share our passion for cheese with all those who visit our shops.
The last few years have seen Clare and John on numerous cheese related adventures from meeting cows in muddy fields to sporting fetching blue hairnets and getting hands on "cheddaring" curds. Last month saw another first: taking some of our favourite cheeses on live radio!
Melted cheese is always a winner and perfect for feeding a crowd be it with a bubbling pot of fondue or a molten wedge of Raclette. Gather your family and friends to recreate an evening of authentic après ski or branch out to share the joy of cheese with an Alpine themed supper club.
