The Cheese (iest) Wedding Menu!
Cheese at weddings
A long long time ago, back before the wedding season whirlwind was in full force, I asked you lovely lot to let me know the one food you couldn’t live without. Well it was practically unanimous. Virtually everyone said the same – cheese. I couldn’t agree more. I love the stuff too, in fact living in France it was my downfall as I could never resist a cheese board. Which got me thinking about how many amazing ways we’ve brought cheese at weddings to its glory more recently. From petite cheesy nibbles to the ultimate table top cheese platters and pork pie and cheese wedding cake.
We really are le grand fromage.
