Based in The New Forest in the United Kingdom, Jonathan Broomfield (a.k.a Cheesy1) exudes enthusiasm & is a passionate cheese expert with over fifteen years’ experience in the industry.
He is a seasoned professional cheese judge with over 5 years of service at both the International Cheese & Dairy Awards and British Cheese Awards. He has just recently been appointed a UK Ambassador for the International Cheese & Dairy Awards.
He is a former member of the Guild of Cheese Graders where he officially ISO accredited his palate and through the years has also been certified as a butter grader.
Along the way the Cheesy1 has developed a passion for supporting cheesemakers, and their products, by writing about them on the Cheesy1 blog.
This has led to hosting over 30 unique & tailored cheese talks & tastings that are fun & informative where he has received praise across the board for his entertaining presentation style.
He can be booked for your speaking events, bespoke tasting events, judging, cheese grading and more.
Keen to expand his knowledge & further share his extensive passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for all things cheese, the Cheesy1 has recently become the Cheese Expert for Harveys of Hythe (harveysofhythe.co.uk).
