Businesses collaborate to host an artisanal beer and cheese pairing evening

Posted by Wold Top Brewery on

Three award winning Yorkshire businesses are collaborating to host a beer and cheese pairing evening.

On 27th June, the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School at Southburn, near Driffield will host a unique gastro event and sampling evening with its first Artisanal Beer and Cheese Pairing.

The Cookery School's resident chef Ali Bilton has created an imaginative tasting menu that combines cheese from Thirsk's Shepherd's Purse with locally sourced ingredients that will be served with complementary beers from Wold Newton based microbrewery, Wold Top Brewery.

Taking advantage of the demonstration area at the Cookery School, Ali Bilton will show the audience how to make canapà © style treats like Harrogate Blue and Old York mini soufflà ©s, Yorkshire pea and Yorkshire Fine Fettle fritters, Pork Fillet with Buffalo Blue and Walnuts and Mini Lavender cakes with Katie's White Lavender icing. Guests will have the opportunity to sample the dishes and the matching beers throughout the demonstration and buy cheese and beer afterwards. Gill Mellor from Wold Top Brewery and Shepherd's Purse founder Judy Bell will talk through the pairings.

Gill Mellor is looking forward to participating in the event "It's a great opportunity for people to enjoy great Yorkshire produce and to learn how beer can complement food in the same way that wine does. It promises to be a fun, informative and tasty evening in a very relaxed environment."

The evening starts at 7.00pm and includes a glass of Wold Top Brewery beer on arrival. Tickets cost £25 and are available online at or by calling 01377 227723.
