Based in The New Forest on the south coast of England, Jonathan Broomfield (Cheesy1) exudes enthusiasm & is a passionate cheese expert with over sixteen years’ experience in the cheese industry. He is a seasoned professional cheese judge with over 8 years of service at both the International Cheese & Dairy Awards and British Cheese Awards. His dedication was recognised by the International Cheese & Dairy Awards who appointed him as their UK Ambassador.

He was a member of the former Guild of Cheese Graders where he officially ISO accredited his palate and was trained on how to probably distinguish flavour & taste profiles. He has also been certified as a butter grader through training provided by Jayne Hickinbotham of Dee Dairy Services.

 

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. 

 

Jonathan Broomfield is available to be booked as a speaker for an event or talk, bespoke tasting events, judging, cheese grading and consultancy work. Please feel free to email Jonathan at jhb.cheese@gmail.com to discuss your requirements.

Keen to further share his extensive passion, knowledge, and enthusiasm for all things cheese, the Cheesy1 is working with Harveys of Hythe (harveysofhythe.co.uk) as their Cheese Expert. He uses his expertise to provide Harveys customers with a unique cheese selection that changes on a regular basis for a different cheese experience each time they shop with them.
